The Bridger Jacks Rock Climbing
Bridger Jacks after snowfall. November 2007
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Indian Creek contains countless miles of wingate walls, but from a broader view these wall are all rather non-descript. The real landmarks in Indian Creek are the towers... When driving into the area, the first group of towers that one comes to are the obvious Bridger Jack Mesa and its associated towers. This compact area offers a relatively moderate approach and several quality short summit routes.
The area should be very obvious from the main road. If it's not, come back in daylight or when the weather is better. It is on the left when driving into the Indian Creek area, a couple miles past the Donnelly Canyon area. Turn left on the signed Beef Basin Road, cross the river, drive over a cattle guard and immediately turn right. Follow this road until right below the serrated ridge that is Bridger Jack. I've seen low-rider cars all the way back there, but I'm happy to have a truck for this road.

This is a great route! As Cornachionne (sp?) says in his guide, "every pitch has character and excitement." The route is located on the west side of the Bridgers and summits the Bridger Jack Butte. As far as I remember, all of the pitches were less then 100'.P1: Great hands splitter that starts off with 2.5 Friends and goes to #2 Camalots.P2: Contrary to Cornachionne's description of this pitch, it is not dangerous or "r" rated.
