Per Julie Nelson: the forest is closed due to after fire concerns in this area until June 30, 2021. There is a sign at the trailhead about the closure. See the US Forest Service website for further updates.
Previously: per Bruce Hildenbrand: Storm Mountain Road is open to all.
Per Hank C: the Storm Mt./Cedar Park area is closed to locals-only traffic for the time being due to wildfire concerns. We were turned away by a park ranger this morning (9/12/2020).
I worked this issue with Eric Murdock at the AF, and it looks like the Forest Service picked Devil's Gulch Road as the southern boundary even though all the climbing areas on MP.com were not burned.
Gravestone can be found on the West side of the Catacomb (right side when descending the Catacomb trail), about half way down the Sepulcher Formation. The start can be identified by a large flake standing in front of the Sepulcher which appears as a wide tombstone when viewed from above.
The start begins behind this flake, then climb up easy shelves to the first bolt, and follow 3 bolts of crystal pinching and Needles-like knob grabbing. The anchor is off to the left above the steep climbing, a two bolt affair shared with The Mausoleum. Rap 40' to the ground.
