On the west face of The Canyon. The route begins downhill from where the base of the canyon slopes sharply downard. "Before The Storm" is the 4th line of bolts from the gap between the Egg & the Jukebox, as of March 2013.
"Before The Storm" is located in The Canyon and is the fourth line of bolts on the west (left) side of the narrow shaded canyon formed by the Chicken & the Jukebox. "Before The Storm" begins with a high bolt, 15ft. above the ground and just downhill from where the base of the canyon slopes sharply downward, and uphill from the bush growing in the narrow portion of the canyon. Face climb up and over a bulge. Above the bulge the angle eases and numerous pockets lead up and slightly right to the top.
9 bolts & chain anchors.

Definitely a very high first bolt and the crux is right at the bulgey part about a third of the way up. After that the route gets slightly easier although leading is rather exposed considering there are about 4 bolts over 50ish feet.
