Access Issue: Storm Mt./Cedar Park road closed to non-locals
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).
This route was submitted twice in this database. The original submission by Dave Loring was under Outer Gates. Since, Gillett's current guidebook for the area lists this under Vestibule, this second listing will be retained and the descriptions combined.
This is the furthest right of the routes in the Inner Sanctum, on the south wall. 90' of sustained 5.8-5.9 slab and face climbing is broken by a few rests to give your toes a break. The bulge crux is more of the same, just a mite steeper. Primo route. 9 bolts. Use a 60m rope.
Thin climbing on superb knobs and interesting edges. Climb is 5.9 to the crux which comes at a bulge shortly after the 6th bolt. This route shares anchors with Inner Peace (climb located immediately to the right).
On the west facing portion of the Inner Sanctum (left hand side if coming from the Vestibule proper) immediately around the corner from Abbey Arete on the Outer Gates.
