The first clip might be more dangerous and the moves to reach it more difficult for shorter climbers. THe crux will also be harder, as it has the climber splayed out a bit even at a height of 5'10". The top of the roue goes right and then back left- the holds in flaring crack on the left are a little brittle. Clipping the final anchor might also be hard for shorter folks- this was definately outfitted for the tall.
