Bear Lake Monster is the long limestone cliff that snakes along the ridge above the Sinks just before Logan Canyon summit.

Despite looking promising from a distance, there are surprisingly few good routes here, though more hiking might turn up additional routes.

Getting There 

50 yards past the road crew sheds in the sinks, right at the curve that turns the highway south toward the summit, turn north onto the Swan Flats dirt road. At the end of the top switchback, park and hike south along the cliff band.

Climbing Season

Shedding Monster Scales 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Bear Lake Monster
This route climbs through bands of great limestone broken by bands of chossier stuff. Lots of time went into cleaning the route, but I'm sure that there will be more monster scales to shed in the chossier bands, so make sure the belayer is wearing a hard hat. The crux is encountered just before the seventh bolt as you pull onto a technical slab. Overall fun climbing for what it is....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Being so far removed from lower Logan Canyon, can this route be moved to the Bear Lake area instead?
