[Hide Comment] Absolutely stunning route! Its the only rome going up a beautiful water mark. Gets cruxy at the top when the feet disappear but definitely doable route. Im on 5'8 too and I did it. So don't let the big moves get you thinking you can't do it! Its fun. Be ready for a big fall after the last bolt before the anchors if you don't get it! Dec 14, 2011
