Description

In addition to all the buttresses, Indian Creek has two solitary towers sitting on talus cones. South Sixshooter is the smaller of the two(the one on the left when viewed from the Bridger Jack area), and has the easiest good route in Indian Creek, and maybe the easiest tower summit route in the desert.

Getting There

Continue past Bridger Jack mesa, and drive past the two Sixshooter towers. Turn left on the road in to Davis Canyon, which is signed and leads to Canyonlands. The trailhead is several miles up the 4WD road - high clearance or a complete disregard for your car are required to make it all the way. Park in the dry creekbed at the easiest looking point of the low mesa - you will drive all the way around the mesa and park as the road starts to head away from it. A cairned trail exists on the mesa that is worth finding to make the approach easier and to protect the cryptobiotic soil. Plan on an hour or so uphill walk to get to the base of the tower.
