Great to be back at Smith, soaking up the sun and the crazy rock formations. We've been doing a lot more hiking and surfing this summer than climbing, so the Smith 5.9s (which are really like 5.10s) felt a lot more like 5.12s to me and my weak fingers...bahhh. Shout out to our pals who brought their 10 month old along, and still crushed some Smith 5.10s.

The walls weren't as crowded as we expected, since most people visiting were in town for the eclipse, not the climbing. What a treat to have a short line or no line for super fun routes.
