DescriptionRites of Passages is an unlikely-looking pitch that offers easy climbing up to a very enjoyable roof/ceiling crux sequence.
P1: Head up the low-angle face and wide crack in the large, left-facing dihedral and pull through the vertical section at its top on bomber hand jams and face holds. Continue to a belay at a tree. 5.8, 150 feet.
P2 - 4: Head up into the large, right-facing corner as for Barfy's Favorite and finish on that route, or move left into Forward Never Straight (a.k.a. Shade of Grey). To really get your money's worth, move right and finish on Judy's Jaunt.
Location70 feet climber's right of The Greatest Route at Greyrock is a large left-facing dihedral with a bushy crack to its left. This is Rites of Passage - don't worry, it's cleaner than it looks.
