A loose easy crack left just left of Smokey Smith. Poor rock.


Gear to 4", emphasis on less than 2". Lower off Smokey Smith's fixed anchor.

I climbed this route yesterday. At about 2/3 the way up I sent a baseball sized chunk off the route nearly hitting my belayer below. Also, I don't believe you're supposed to top-out, rather traverse over to the anchors to the right. I topped out and couldn't get to the anchors safely without some sketchy downclimbing. I had to do some thinking to get off the formation and the solution didn't involve that particular anchor.

I too found the two moves of downclimbing to the anchors to be the crux. Still a fun little splitter
