Scramble up to the base of the left arete on the beach side of Meyers Rock.Climb the crack using gear to 2 inches.Lots of face holds make for easier climbing,using crack mostly for pro.When crack runs out,so do you,for 15 feet to the top.Anchors are no longer present.

Descent Options:

use belay partner for anchor on opposite side of saddle,and rap and retrieve gear

4 out of 5 stars Gordy onsights Lil Smokeys

Super juggy and fun with good placements.WAY better than the other two oscar meyer routes,but when the crack ends ,it gets sketch.Its like a good 15 to 20 ft. run out and the rock starts to crumble more and more the higher you get.Still the more solid route on the rock tough.No anchors at top,so have a good plan.
