4 out of 5 stars Intro to 5.10a slab

5.10a cruxes on both pitches are well protected by bolts just before the cruxes. The 5.10a in corner/crack felt easier than 5.10a. Small cams (black, blue aliens), a bit bigger higher up. I led the 1st 5.10a pitch.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent climb, Smithers

Careful, no fixed pro on P2, so bring some small stuff. Staying right of the left-facing corner eases the climbing a bit. Tricky 10a move at start of P2.
