I'm going to be in the area for work 6/16 - 6/19, wonder if there are any sport climbs / areas that would be reasonable to get into in the afternoon after work 4/5pm. Joel Wickard

Your best bet is going to be Salt Lake Slips or Challenge Buttress in Big Cottonwood. Narcolepsy Wall is fun too (also in BCC). Charlie S

Joel, If you can climb up to 5.12 than the Dry Wall in Echo canyon East of Park City is a quick place to get pumped. It is right next to the road and all of the routes are safely bolted and receive afternoon shade. All of the 12's have fixed draws so you can whip away with no commitment to make it to the top. There are usually locals at the wall in the afternoon that are willing to give a belay. Highly recommended place if you like sustained routes that will give you a solid pump. earl mcalister

Thanks Earl, looks like the drywall would be pushing it for me. The routes in Bear Hollow look a little more like my speed, does that area see as much action as drywall? How is BCC going to typically look after the snow we got yesterday? Joel Wickard

I've never climbed Bear Hollow so no idea. The Drywall has the ultra short approach so that is the typical after work crag for 9 to 5ers.

Big Cottonwood routes typically are more shady than in Little so it could be hit or miss whether they are dry or not. I'm currently in Idaho until tomorrow so I don't know the weather right now. My guess is down low it is raining but things dry out fast around there, especially with a little sun.

Bear Hollow is good. Just watch for the broken glass. Zero approach. Charlie S
