After reaching the all and walking around the the right you can't miss this climb. It is the right crack of two cracks flanking a sort of pillar. There is a distinct crux, but it is well protected. The rock is amazing and the moves are fun.


Funk Rock City, this is the obvious left facing flake in nice orange rock with a splitter fingercrack up high on the left wall (the route Goodstone 5.11a).


Standard rack, make sure you have some finger crack sized stuff for the crux. Bolt anchors.

This climb was a pun on the neighboring climb, Rite of Passage. Lynn observed many times that in the area, people cruised on the left and you had to move right to pass... Ergo, "Rite (Right) Of Passage" and "Cruising Lane."

Fun route, with slippery feet during the crux...unless you keep your toes in the finger crack.
