Just upstream from the Wildfire Wall lies this fantastic line of columns. The narrow approach (aka The Catwalk) is just above the river. The cracks here are remarkably good and would be worth a weekend trip unto themselves.
Follow the trail upstream from the Wildfire Wall along the narrow catwalk.

This is one of the Mega-classics of the gorge and Smith. It is one of the finest handcracks you'll ever do. The crack starts as tight hands and gradually widens to fists at the top.
