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.
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.

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

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