it took about half an hour to work around that pouroff
I'm with Jeff, I don't remember the big pouroff looking that way.Viper, you came down the "left" (or westerm) arm of the Smoky Creek drainage from the Dodson instead of taking the trail, which goes down the right (or eastern) arm of the Smoky Creek drainage. The pouroff that is on along the trail is as Jeff described, maybe a mile back up the wash from pt 4230. The pouroff in the picture that you took could be in the drainage past where the west and east arms of the drainage converge as I remember and is not that difficult to come down.Now keep in mind that Jeff's pouroff is no where as difficult as the one that you had to come around in the upper portion of your wash. There are a few cairns that mark a deer path that go around it to the right but you don't climb up nearly as high as the other one.So if you went down the western arm of the drainage where did you go after you joined the trail past pt 4230?
