Rivers Edge is the last route on the south wall of the upper narrows. Climb past the cracks and finish on the arete to the left.

P.S. Don't bail to the right.

The FA was done by Matt Merton and Brian Loth. It is a very fun climb, and established on lead.

A solid .10b, especially when compared to the other .10a at the crag. The start is tricky and then gets increasingly pumpy with a very odd final move.
