Take the large left-facing corner using the crack and face to a leftward traverse towards the top (crux) finish at chains. Overall, this route is great with interesting and diverse moves, good rests, and an exciting finish.
After turning right at the waterfall follow the trail a short ways. Passages takes a very obvous large left-facing corner. See pic for a visual.
Standard rack. The bottom section will take some larger pieces (i.e., # 4 WC Friend or equivalent). Save some mid-sized stoppers and small cams for the top.

This excellent route is seriously underrated with just one star in the Cragger; I think it's even better than Prerequisite. Solid 5.8 lead with great gear placements (at least until you get near the top). Loads of fun!

I'd say there's no reason for a "+" on this one. Great route for fledgling .8 leaders. Great gear, easy to place @ crux, etc...

Great climb with good gear. Great crack, face and roof moves. Bring a long runner to manage rope drag. 3-4 star worthy for sure.

Passages is one of the best 5.8's I have done anywhere. It feels like a perfect rock climb.

Did not anticipate the crux near the finish, and therefore did not bring the gear. Makes for a pretty spicy top out! If you are not confident in placing good gear, be extra careful in the roofs.

the route is absolutely fantastic. however, i will say the gear at the top is tough. definitely could scare a beginner. get on it though.
