i love this section of crack... so nice...


Start up Cruising Lane for a few meters and then step left onto a ledge and into a thinner crack. Protect from the better stances (with feet) and sprint inbetween. As the crack ends climb up and left to the ledge.
To descend, rap from the Cruising Lane anchors.


Just left of Cruising Lane and Right of Passage, on the left hand side of the same inset on can see a thinner line through the face that starts on Cruising Lane. This is Goodstone.


Gear up to 2" knuckle-sized cams are useful. The larger piece to start on Cruising Lane is optional.

After having done Rebar, there is no way this is 11a.

Compared to rebar this is hard to even call this 10d like the guidebook does. Still a fun route with sweet locks and well protected face climbing afterwards.
