Fingers Butte is a rather insignificant hump that is located just west of the Arco-Minidoka Road about 15 miles south of Arco, Idaho. It is most easily climbed via its east face, entirely on BLM land. USGS Fingers Butte
The Arco-Minidoka (A-M) Road begins southwest of Arco, just off US-20. From the junction of US-20 and US-93 in downtown Arco, drive west on US-20 for 1.9 miles. Turn left/south onto [signed] 3100W. This is the A-M Road. Drive 13.4 miles south then southeast on the A-M Road to a signed junction with Big Southern Butte Road at a fork in the road. Go right/west here to stay on the A-M Road. At 14.5 miles, reach a cattle guard crossing that is east-northeast of the summit. Park here (5,523 feet). GPS coordinates: 43⁰25’30”N, 113⁰13’56”W.
East Face, Class 2
From the cattle guard, aim directly at the cairned summit and bushwhack through gapped sagebrush to reach the rocky summit of Fingers Butte. There is a 70-foot drop to a wide gully along the way. The summit has a tall cairn, a triangulation post, and triangulation wiring. Please note that the USGS topo map shows a jeep road heading south then west to the summit from the A-M Road. However, that road no longer exists.
