Anybody gotten on Storm Mountain Falls lately? I scoped it from the road yesterday and it looked just about it -- not quite as good as the picture here but pretty close.

For those that have done it, is there adequate rock gear if the ice isn't protectable?

Not really much rock pro, I dimly recall. Kinda climbs to the left of the semi bolted rock route Transformer. Far enough left that clipping bolts or placing pro in the features of that route isn't really much of an option.

I also seem to recall the rock on the ice line is a bit loose, so, not sure if you managed to get a nut, cam or even pin in if it'd actually hold.

Sounds like a good question for 'Utah Ice Conditions' discussion... RonB
