Rites of Passage 5.8 *** 75' F(5b)
On the low-angled first cliff on the left, climb the left side to the chain anchors near the top. Sustained high quality progressively harder face climbing. The top 15' is runout 5.2 or so, protectable by a medium cam if need be.


Climbs the left side of the first cliff on the left when approaching The Far South from the south.


Fixed (5 bolts)

Oh, I finally figured out the symbols "F(5b)", "M" etc. Nice system, I hope others start using it more.

Thanks Jon, I'm not sure where I picked it up along the way. Maybe I'll have to add a key for the descriptions to the main area pages.

  • Note - a key to route descriptions;
NAME; grade and quality (* - good, ** - very good, *** - great, **** - world class classic); (length); type of pro. used - G = natural/gear, F = fixed (b - bolt, p - piton, fn - fixed nut), M = mixed; TR = toprope, R = runout/dangerous, PG = scary/risky; Description; FA (first ascent date), GU = ground up ascent, TR = top rope ascent.

Yes, the main area pages would help. Call it the "One-line description", "Abbreviated route description" or something maybe?

If I can stop being so lazy, I could try to get the system going at Index, and see if others pick it up. Nov 18, 2014
