The 4X4 wall is one of the best places to climb when it is a little too warm to be in the sun. The most popular routes are in the shade and face North. Expect a more adventurous feel at this wall compared to the more popular areas. On many of the classic routes, the varnish is very dark, which translates into some of the best rock quality in the creek. Be aware though, there is a little loose rock here and there, as well as some lichen due to the walls northern exposure. Since the climbs do not get constant traffic, the inside walls of the crack may be a bit dusty / dirty (I once had a partner that complained his finger stacks would not stick because of this issue. He was trying to send "Hydraulic Pump" 5.12+).
This the first buttress encountered on right side of Beef Basin Road. The majority of the climbs on this wall face North toward the main road. Several options exist for the approach. It is advised to check with the current state of Indian Creek camping options before deciding where to pitch your tent, or approach this wall. In years past one could park just past the turn off for Bridger Jack camping and find cairns and a trail that takes one up the talus slope to the base of the routes. Use good judgement in your approach. It is not uncommon to be the only party at the wall.

This is the first route right of 4x4. The left of the duo of twin splitters up offsets (the right being Crankcase).The crux is the first changing corners and is pretty burly, above this it's just a matter of hanging on......[more] Browse More Classics in UT
