Does anybody have any beta for routes 5.6 or less on storm king peak?

Do you mean Storm Peak, .8 miles NW of Longs Peak? It's Class 2 from the Keyhole. I walked up it on a more direct line from the Boulder Field years ago, that was Class 2 as well. I don't know of any technical routes on it.

It's class 3 from the south.

The approach from Vallecito is a flat and easy thirteen miles and requires no 4WD shenanigans. 

North Face was pretty fair 5.7 for the most part but we took a really fun vertical headwall variation that I'd give a 5.10.

We walked off the Class 3 and it was casual. Trip report: http://aperfectweakness.com/2017/08/21/storm-king-north-face-direct/ .

Thanks!  As someone who has struggled with severe OCD and anxiety, I think what you are doing is great!

Thanks, man! We just recorded the first episode of the APW podcast. I'll put out a casting call on MP pretty soon here for anyone else who is interested in being interviewed to share how climbing helps them sustain mental wellness.
