BETA PHOTO: Roadside Distraction- Trad route- no anchors


Around the corner from Smokey, you will find a wide crack that ends under a roof. Twist and turn up and over the roof to top out. No anchors. Walk off to the west.

Right of Smokey near overpass


Gear- no anchors- walk off to the west

Hopefully we'll get some anchors on this climb. Right now it's kinda hard to protect crack, to wide chimney and belay off trees.
