Contouring along the Lefthand Wall you will take a left up a scree gully. Be careful here as it is alwasy loose and it is always possible to take a nasty ride down the scree likely injuirng oneself in the process. GAC rulz is the middle route between Triangulate and Big Bull. The route is vertical with the crux at a small roof aout mid way through. This climb is equally as fun as Big Bull.
Bolts to chain anchors. A 60 meter rope is a must for this route. It barely reaches.

Actually, I liked this climb quite a bit. Mostly huge holds with a few long moves to make the grade 5.10. The sport routes to the right are thinner and harder. Take a lot of draws for this one!

I love this route - definitely worth doing again and again. Close enough to the road to hit on the way off the mountain if there is still an hour of daylight left. My first time on this I was climbing into the dark, actually. Between the last clip and the chain anchor it gets a little thin and meanders a bit, so I give it a PG-13.

Undercling flakes at the start: One is flexing and bound to come off soon.
Guaranteed groundfall if you fall near third bolt, unlikely but you never know with the rock at Hairpin.

OK Christian, now you have to start carrying a pry bar with you.

Very cool route. Best 10 on the wall by far. Added Mussy hooks to anchors.

1st bolt drilled into a fractured block... eh ? Good route though.
