Description

A fun and striking corner, The Passage climbs the certain dihedral to the wall's upper rim. Despite a loose and dirty upper pitch, good moves through a good crack still make this a decent choice.
This is also the starting pitch for Free Passage.

P1: Solid rock and good climbing pass a single crux and a piece of old tied off webbing. Finish at a ledge.
It is recommended you stop here and belay from the left, lower off a set of anchors.

P2: Climb broken and very loose rock to the top and set a belay.
Not recommended.

Location

The Passage is the prominent corner/dihedral in the middle of the Moore Wall.

Protection

A single set of cams and stoppers.

I climbed this with Rip earlier in the summer. He said that where the tat was found was most likely someones high point, there was no other evidence up higher. I guess its not a for sure answer, but seem like he deserves some credit (First recorded ascent?). Like most guide books there are some mistakes. Rip has pointed out a few things to me which I found interesting. Rip was the one who found the crag of tiers mushroom hunting one day. He told Fred and Chris about it and they went there shortly after and put up the first route there, the Lowe Route (the book says The First Time was first). Rip was also shocked that the Lowe route got no stars in the book. We thought the Lowe Route was one of the best no star routes we have climbed in the Uintas. Sep 22, 2010

shweet, where'd you hear that?

while i'd just as much assume RG, it was my understanding that the webbing was there before 1998. Sep 22, 2010
