Gangbang Wall

Question: Which way do you do Gangbang Wall? There seems to be a disconnect between the Topo and the description... the Topo shows clipping the first 3 on Hanger Wall ArĂȘte, but the description says the first two... I'd be more inclined to think the first two on HWA, then over to the next FH which is just before the seam on the Gangbang line.

From memory and looking at the topo, it is the first 2. But it has been many years since i last did it

Hi John I did it both ways but it feels like the right way is the first 2 then straight up. It doesn't really seem to change the grade either way.

I did it first two bolts of HWA then over right to the bolt on the slab, but the hand traverse R from the 3rd on HWA would be cool anyway.

Ha ha yeah Dan! That's what I thought, hence the question; I was like "Hmm, both are actually nice lines, I wonder what the intended way was". But yeah, I'm doing it the same way as you at present.

Yeah having tried it recently I can confirm its the first 2 bolts on HWA then to the clip before the crack/seam feature and up

Thanks Jake. I was more meaning what was the intended route, but it sounds like we're all climbing first 2 on HWA then moving onto the GBW line which is good!
