Geriatric is one of many great rock climbs on the East End of Rundle (EEOR) above Canmore.  The rock is beautifully textured limestone with lots of cracks & corners.  The climbing is consistent throughout and the lack of big ledges makes for some excellent exposure high above the valley!  If the first couple pitches feel easy we can also choose to continue up the more difficult Econoline (5.10a) from that point on.  From the top, a few steep rappels bring us back to the base of the climb.
