Great climb good rock


The middle bolted route. More of the same style climbing, just a bit harder.


2 bolts for anchors and several draws for the climb. I brought a couple nuts for the runout sections. Rappell off.

This is one of the best 5.6 bolted routes i've done. The upper runout is maybe 5.2, so gear isn't really necessary.

I always have trouble with ratings, but I thought this was a grade easier than War Clamor. Jugs galore! Make sure you climb above the chains and enjoy the view from the ridge.

Didn't climb War Clamor, but I definitely thought this was easier than Iraq in the Back Attack. Very fun climbing for the new leader. Put a runner on the second/third bolt to avoid a little of the rope drag.

Great route, one of my first lead climbs and a great beginner climb especially if you use a little pro. As I recall, I used was a red bd and a yellow metolious.

This is a nice route. Definitely a 5.6, but its easier than Iraq in the Back Attack. Good for a first lead on a 5.6.

I would say that this was actually easier than Iraq in the Back Attack. Fun though... great to get the juices flowing.

Nice, fun 5.6 route. Pretty run out at the end. It's probably 15 feet from the last bolt to the chains, but it's probably 5.4 or less up there. Bring a couple nuts or some C3s if you want to protect it.

Would whoever is adding bolts and retrofitting anchors to numerous routes in the Storm Mountain area please call or write me? Thank you.

There are bolts and chains at the top for anchors. If you don't climb Iraq be sure to peak your head above the ridge and enjoy the view!!!
