'Captain zero' was climbed at least as early as nov 2000 and named the moneyshot. There was no chalk on it when we started working it, so if anyone has knowledge of an earlier ascent I would be interested. ...

I visited the roadside boulder for the first time in 2001. But I have heard talk that it had been climbed many times during the 90's and maybe even as far back as the late 80's. Mcafee's has gone through dead times in the past, which would explain the lack of chalk on "captain zero". No matter the name, the problem is one of my favorites in the area.

The main line at roadside, which you are calling captain zero, is called "The Money Shot" from what I have heard. It is also commonly called simply "Sit-down" and "Stand-up" if you start at the huge jug in the wall and cut out the V7? crux.
