Stanley Climbfall is the second studio album by California-based alternative rock band Lifehouse. The album features the hit single "Spin". It had sales of over 500,000 in the United States and has also sold over 2 million copies worldwide to date. Like their first album, Stanley Climbfall was produced by Ron Aniello.

This album should also be noted for being the heaviest album by Lifehouse to date. Unlike their other albums, Stanley Climbfall had a more complex and heavier rock sound than any other album in their catalog. The band has never returned to this sound after this album failed commercially.
