Start on the face that is perpendicular to the orientation of the face of Riverview. The crux move is halfway up. After this you traverse to the left onto the arête and finish to the bolted anchor.

This [Corroding Through Nocturnal Silk] is a 5.8 in the Yoder book on the far west end. Maybe you mean Newton Chips, 10c- the next climb right of Kicking.
would be on the left end of the west portion of Riverview park- I know it is pretty confusing, does not help that there are 3 similar sounding areas- riverview park, riverview point and riverview columns.
Dew Claw on the left
When angels dress on the right.
It is a descent 5.8 with 4 somewhat spread out clips.
It already exists there- maybe just delete this.

I agree with Geoff, I believe the route described here is actually Newton Chips, 5.10c. Probably best to delete this route (incorrectly labeled Corroding Through Nocturnal Silk). It makes it confusing trying to figure out where you are when there is this extra route listed. I climbed this route (Newton Chips) yesterday and a bunch of routes around it and have a pretty good feel for what is there.

If you think you are looking at Corroding Through Nocturnal Silk at the right (east) end of Riverview Park Centre, you are actually looking at Newton Chips on the west end of Rivervew Park Right Side. Is that confusing enough? :D
