Description 

This is a link-up of Gale Force, Alice and Stormchaser (hence the name G.A.S.) I did a long time ago (7/04). I think it combines some of the coolest climbing of all three routes.
Stick-clip the first two bolts on Gale Force and do its hard boulder problem start. When you get to the rest, clip the 4th bolt of Alice on your left. Traverse left into Alice and climb its middle crux followed by its cool long moves on good holds (Alice bolts 4 & 5). When you get to the good left hand two finger pocket that you normally clip Alice's 6th bolt, cross through to your left to another great two finger pocket and stem across the void. Now you are on Stormchaser and can enjoy its exciting little exit crux. Finish straight up on Stormchaser.
The movement on this link-up is excellent and is highly recommended. Enjoy!

Protection 

All bolts. 7 total I think (1st 2 on Gale Force, bolts 4 & 5 on Alice, and bolts 7, 8 & 9 of Stormchaser)
