Description 

Bumble Bee Wall is a steep, massive rock formation that is south facing. It has a few sport routes, otherwise it is trad. There are 13 routes on this wall, with some being multi-pitch. Their grades range from a 5.6 traverse to 5.11d. Some climbs can be rappeled, some require a 60 meter rope. Still others need scrambling off.

Getting There 

In Storm Mountain Picnic Area on the NW end beyond the playground is a large triangular cliff. Some of the climbs are approached via a ledge and 4th class scrambling at the base. Others require a hike up to the west and are either behind the pedestal or further up the side.

Here is the beginning of sin nombre. Awesome Climb.

Sin Nombre 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Bumble Bee Wall
Jam the finger and off finger crack up to the two piton anchor. The second pitch could be combined with the first and both pitches eat up the medium sized nuts. Nice, stout grade and the best route on this wall by a long shot!...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
