Classic tall slab problem. Begin right hand on the arete, stand into the left mono pocket, and begin working up the arete with decent feet. Then move left hand out to a nice left facing flake at which point the feet become very delicate. Find your foot dimples and work up the arete and flake to the top.


The Big Boulder, the obvious large boulder near the a-frame, a few hundred feet north of the parking area.


pads and spotter. Can be top-roped.

This problem was coined Smoke Stack by myself in 2008 with what I believe to be the FA.
