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.

Rock Climbing Photo: Just past the crux

Shedding Monster Scales 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Utah : 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 Utah
