A Desert Life: Climbing in Indian Creek, Utah

Alf Randell gave it all up for his passion. He escaped city life and everything that comes with it for an opportunity to live and climb in Indian Creek, Utah.

Alf Randell is a self-described “dirtbag” who has spent nearly a decade of his life climbing amongst the soaring sandstone cliffs of Indian Creek, Utah. In November, 2011, I spent some time climbing with Alf and documented his life in “The Creek,” his love of tall splitter cracks, and his decision to shun city life in favor of a small camper in the middle of the Utah desert.
