Private Property now at the entrance to Bells Canyon. MORE INFO >>>


East of East Bell Tower, what was previously referred to as simply Waterfall Dome actually includes at least 3 separate granite domes. Each is separated by gully systems and for sake of clarification and location, Waterfall Dome is the very next dome to the east of East Bell.

Getting There 

Two well established trail heads now are available. One on Wasatch Blvd. and the other on the Little Cottonwood Canyon Road, which also has a parking area, toilets, and is marked as the granite trail.
Hike up the Bells canyon trail until the big waterfall and cross the stream on the rickety wood bridge.

This is a fun route. Itís not as steep as For Whom the Bells Toll and the rock isnít quite as good (it's a little grittier), but it's got some really neat and enjoyable climbing on it. The route is characterized by smooth slabs and chickenheads. Lots and lots of chickenheads.Pitch 1: Long pitch. Climb up some slabs that are interspersed with horizontal cracks (there are 2 bolts on the slabs). Do some mantling and then head up the corner to the right of the knobby roof (which looks like a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

The Waterfall Dome Bushwhack - After you cross the Rickety Bridge (somewhere near red circle.. not sure exactly), walk up trail a ways and look for a pretty massive boulder to the right of the trail. Just before the boulder head left (North). Look for a little "gardening" and follow the snipped branches to the base of East Waterfall Dome. Follow the base up and around just past the base of Kinabalu. The upper decent sized pine marks the way across the gulch to Waterfall Dome.
