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.

For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : AC/DC Wall
Want to feel like you're climbing a route in the mountains but don't want to be bothered to actually have to walk all the way up there? This route is for you. It's long, follows a sort of natural passage up the rock, and stays interesting the whole way up. Really good rock is broken up by a few bands of chossy white loveliness. The crux is surmounting a bulge at the 8th bolt. Hint: go right, but not too far right.A lot of the ledges and holds have small pebbles on them. It's a good idea for the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
