Description 

Storm Mountain's Pyschobabble Wall is very steep and has many difficult lines. The climbs mainly range from 5.10 to 5.12, with one 5.7 on the wall. Lots of quality routes in a small area.

Getting There 

Park either in the Storm Mountain picnic area (fee area, $4/car I think), or use a pullout just across the road. Walk through the parking lot, and look for the playground. From here, walk north through a field with tall grass, following a climber's trail. Follow this up to the gully that splits Bumble Bee Wall on the left, with Psychobabble Wall on the right. Scramble up 4th class terrain to the base. Two sets of anchors allow a rappel to reverse this approach if desired.

An amazing route that starts in an undulating crack, traverses left up and around to a dihedral and through a really fun crux. High flow route! Its easy to TR Eye in the Sky from these anchors. This is a really fun route that you'll find yourself going back to again and again....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Climbers parking on the road at Storm Mountain do not have to pay to walk through the picnic area to climb!This was not the case in year's past! Please be friendly and respectful to the site hosts. Using the restrooms in the picnic are is ENCOURAGED, and does not require a fee. But any use of the picnic or parking area DOES require a fee. If you are just climbing, and for some reason the hosts ask you to pay, don't argue with them! Pay the $2 (walk in) or leave with a smile!

Does anyone know what the amazing looking variation/route in between Babble and Stematic is? It's got 3 bolts (?) and travels up the awesome looking overhanging arete...
Didnae get a chance this evening, but I will definitely be back for this one!

someone said its .13 but Ihaven't tried it. slopers and steepness. I wonder how hard the direct variation without the traverse is? Kinda between the first good rest and the pod handjam. Its spookier, that's for sure - and steeper. What about the direct finish to Rebel Yell?

Sun exposure is very dependent on the time of year. It's always sunny in the middle of the day. Right now it gets some nice afternoon shade, but in the fall it stays sunny pretty late.
