Climb the flakes and make fun moves through the roof split by a finger crack. Continue up and left to the tree or up and right the the anchors.


This climb is located about 30' left (upstream) of Captain Cod Piece. The route starts on flakes under the roof which is split by a finger crack.


This route protects well with cams. (Yellow Alien to #2 Cam)


I've always called this "Getting Older" (5.9-...it was first soloed/bouldered by Bob D'Antonio. The other two Bob solos are to the left, not the right, and are called "Slab o'Bob" (5.6) and "Bob's Solo" (5.4). To the right is "PBR Me" (5.11d), a crimp route done by Ian Green in 2006. Sep 17, 2008

At the River Wall today -- fun climbing, but I don't think there is any way the move through the overhanging, roof, finger crack goes at just 5.8. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a particularly good climber -- but that's a tough move going over about a 3 ft overhanging roof, without any real feet, using a single finger crack. I'd rate that move closer to 5.10 than 5.8. On the other hand, going up the wider crack that passes the roof on the left side seemed about 5.8 to me, while traversing right underneath the roof, and bypassing it on the right side seemed 5.9ish.
