Smokey is a bolted route with two halves split by bolted anchor on a small ledge. The crux is in the first 10m at the 3rd bolt, leaving the shallow dihedral and again at top of second pitch on the slab/ice finish. Typically this is lead in one long 27m pitch to bolted anchor at top of crag. Ice forms on finish most often from March-May.
Start above broken tree stumps, destroyed when the ice on top of the route connects to the trees and breaks them with its weight. Currently, this is the 2nd bolted route from right side of crag, moving leftward.
