Description:

This route goes up the main Bridger Jack formation on the opposite face from the rest of the listed routes. Use the regular trail then walk all the way around looking for the 5.10 splitter first pitch with a plaque at the base. 1st pitch-cool 5.10 splitter up varnish 2nd pitch-not as hard as the book lists it but poor protection. Probably mid 5.10 moves but runout. Scariness was short-lived so don't let this pitch deter you from doing this spectacular route. 3rd pitch-chimney to left then strenuous hands crack into stembox. Really fun thinhands/stemming to belay. 4th pitch-strenuous sandy thinhands to fists bulge off belay to sustained fists/OW corner. I thought this pitch was the crux of the route. 5th pitch-short loose choss to the summit View is hard to beat from the summit. Descent-Rappel opposite side of formation than you climbed.
