Description

Bear Hollow is a side canyon to Echo Canyon with two established climbing areas so far. Short approaches and a good number of moderate routes make this a popular area. The rock is decent quality conglomerate (helmets recommended).

Note: Glue-in bolts are catching on as the superior choice for this type of rock.
Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April Details

Getting There

From I-80 take exit 169 and drive east for 2.7 miles to a large pullout on the left (north) lined with large boulders and a sign reading "Death's Rock". Clint Eastwood Wall is a short walk to the first obvious cliff face. Bear Hollow Wall is on the same cliff band several yards left of Clint Eastwood Wall.

My wife and I climbed at Bear Hollow today with our kids. It is appalling how much trash there is around the fire pit and the area in general. I told my kids I would pay them three cents for every piece of garbage they picked up. They found 450 pieces of trash! The good news is that the area looks much cleaner now. The bad news is that my wallet got a little bit lighter than I expected! We left all of the trash closed up in an old blue tote that we found on site. We didn't have room in our car to haul it home. If you see it there and you have room, please haul it to the nearest dumpster. Thanks! Nov 24, 2017
