Papillion is located just to the right of Super Slab on the Red Wall and is a worthy beginner sport climb at Smith. It is well bolted and climbs up varied good rock yellowish rock to a two bolted anchor.
Start out by hopping up on shallow heucos before reaching easier big holds. The route moves back and forth on either side of the bolt line on big holds for the first half of the climb before moving higher up and slabbier terrain that requires balance between big hand holds on low angle rock. Keep moving up through yellowish rock before reaching the anchors which sits at the bottom of a vertical looking blank headwall. This is a good climb for beginning lead climbers.

The Petzl Sama is a good all-around harness for sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbs. It offers up low profile gear loops, good padding, and non-adjustable yet comfortable leg loops while still not being overly bulky or heavy. Great for beginners or experienced climbers.
