A test-piece of the area with a long reach to a pocket at half-height being the crux. The long reach can be climbed by a short person's sequence.

Long Reach ?, more like an uncontrolled lurch.

Is there a shorty who has done this ever?

Tim Clifford repeated it, and he's of pretty average stature, though quite strong by all accounts

no moves on this route are too height dependent, just technique and strength dependent. I have done the so called reachy move and I'm only 5'8, there is a trick ;-). It goes without saying that it will be easier if you are tall, nearly all routes on Portland are. I didn't redpoint the route btw.

im only 4 ft 5 and i had serious difficulties on this route!!! i did it however after having lunged up it!! it helps having arms of steel and tiny feet when your only of diminutive stature.
