Comments: Yup, very height-dependent.... I am 5'11", and I think it would be a different move altogether if I was 5'10". This is one where reach makes a difference for sure!

Comments: Long, Fun and spicy. The last bolt is sagging out of the rock and does not inspire confidence. However, fairly spaced bolts and semi-sustained climbing makes it a true gem!
