BETA PHOTO: View of Bear Hollow from I-80. Clint Eastwood Wall...

Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April MORE INFO >>>


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.

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.

Pale Rider 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Utah : Echo Canyon : ... : Bear Hollow Wall
This route follows a line of very closely spaced bolts on the right side of the easier routes on this wall. There is not really any distinct crux, though the moves right off the ground are probably the hardest. Still very dirty, but with traffic this could be a decent beginner route...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
