Description

This outstanding venue lies one valley to the east of it's big brother, the Stanley Headwall, and sees little sun during the winter. It is home to several high quality ice routes, but has recently seen the development of several high quality mixed routes. The Storm Creek Headwall has serious avalanche terrain both below and from above. Use caution when visiting this area!

Getting There

To approach, park at the Stanley Glacier parking area, and then walk back up the road for about 15 min to the open dead-fall slope. Cross the creek and hike up two tiers of dead-fall to a bench and a 'road'. Follow the road left to the creek, and then follow the path of least resistance up the creek/drainage until you emerge from the trees below the northeast end of the headwall.

Now head up a steep slope (avalanche prone) to and through a prominent notch at the N end. This will get you to the bench from which the routes begin
