Description 

AC/DC is located on the right (east) side of the gully below Trilogy Buttress, above the copse of scrub oak that is at the base of Layer Cake.

There are four bolted routes in and around two prominent black streaks in the quartzite. Just uphill from the black streaks there are a several current projects through a large roof. Farther uphill there are a couple more projects and several bolted routes, as well as several lines that have been climbed on gear.

Although the rock is surprisingly good for its location helmets are still recommended because not all loose material has yet been knocked off.

Getting There 

From the parking lot stay left on the road, cross the streambed, and walk to the water tank on the north side of the canyon. Just past the water tank head up a trail to the right of the talus.

Keep heading uphill, passing through some scrub oak until you reach the base of a light-colored crag (The Jobsite) at the bottom, east corner of the gully.

Continue up the gully, staying right of the talus on a faint trail (you can completely avoid the talus). The routes begin at the black streaks on the right side, beyond the scrub oak.

Some enjoyable jug-hauling up overhanging quartzite.Start up less-than vertical rock to the first bolt, and then immediately start on overhanging rock. Clip the second bolt and power your way up. After surmounting the initial overhang the angle eases a bit but there is still some steep terrain until about twenty feet from the chains (a bit runout over easy terrain from the last bolt)....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
