Bear Lake is best known for it's brilliant aqua-blue water, sailing and waterskiing, but its surrounding mountains (think Logan Canyon) have some high-quality limestone.

To my knowledge, the area is almost totally undeveloped for climbing, but hopefully with a little attention, that will soon change and vacationers' fingertips and toes can get a break from the cold water.

Getting There 

From Logan: drive 40 miles through Logan Canyon (Highway 89 - drive east on 400 North) to the lake at Garden City. The highway splits north or south there.

From Evanston: drive north on Highway 89, which becomes 16 when it crosses into Utah. Pass through two small towns and turn left at the stop sign (highway 30). Reach Laketown and continue to Garden City. 50 miles total.

The bottom half of the route is nothing special. Pro is fine, holds are fine.The middle section has a nice crack but not much for feet. Above that is the best part with more crack, a few pockets, etc.Rig your own belay from a few trees atop the cliff - bring webbing to extend the belay closer to the cliff top.Walk off back toward the road and pass down through the huge cave....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
