Description

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.

Location

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).

Protection

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

When I first climbed this route I was breaking in to 5.10 trad. It felt spot on 10a to me. The crux is thin, but it's all there. Rite of Passage actually felt harder to me with the insecure upper dihedral that's hard to protect. Jun 12, 2017
Took my first trad fall on this route. Felt hard for the grade, but I wasn't able to jam and had to layback through the sandy, wet portion and took a whip onto a .3 X4. Changed underwear shortly after. May 9, 2017

Fun route, with slippery feet during the crux...unless you keep your toes in the finger crack. Jun 17, 2012

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." Oct 2, 2006
