2 out of 5 stars Lead the 2nd pitch. Off-width.

Skipped the 1st pitch by my friend leading SW Passage. Not the most enjoyable route and a wake up to outdoor climbing after 3 months in the gym.

3 out of 5 stars A little brutal.

I disagree with the 5.5 rating... and it's more of an offwidth than a crack. Have a couple of #4's or #5's for the top, or you will have to run 15' - 20'+ between pieces on the top... that's what I did.

It's almost a 60m route, so use a 70m rope, or make it two pitches.
