Bridger Jacks after snowfall. November 2007
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.

Face climbing in the desert! Watch out!This is the leftmost detached tower in the Bridger Jack group. Kind of looks like a thumb, has a twin called Sparkling Touch just to the right. The trail along the bottom of Bridger Jack is obvious - go all the way left. The route starts in the obvious wide crack that leads to the left arete of Thumbelina. We belayed below the third class leading to this wide crack, but whatever works best for you. If you have a 50M rope, you probably want to get righ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
