BETA PHOTO: Storm Mountain Island


About 20 climbs ranging from a 5.4 bolted route (first sport route in the canyon! but not that great) to a nutso overhang near the ampitheatre (12d and A1). Don't miss one of the best climbs in the BCC - 5.10c Goodro's Wall (trad).

Getting There 

This island of quartzite rises out of the Storm Mountain Picnic area, about 2.8 miles up the canyon on the left. Wake up the guy at the camper near the entrance to pay your $5 entrance fee, or not. Climbers can park out on the highway and walk in for free if they're not using the picnic facilities. The crag is across the bridge to the south via several short paths that scramble up through the trees/talus.

Beautiful fall conditions on Goodro's and Six Appeal.

Goodro's Wall 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Storm Mountain Island
Arguably the first 5.10 in North America. Fun route, good gear, good jams, pumpy. Feeling burly cause you sent it? Some cowboy did the same back in the 40's....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Above Six Pence, I noticed some fixed gear. Anyone have info on this possible route?

There's a new bolted route on the left arete of the padded cell face. Anyone got any info? Looks cool; lots of features, can't be anywhere near as hard as padded cell.
