Shorties can just pinch the really bad pinch above the jug. It'll go. I'll never try it, but it'll go.

Anything will go if you're strong enough :) Note that this picture was taken after I had moved my feet over, for the throw they were the same. I haven't done this yet, but felt quite hard for 5.12c for me. And it might require a 5'8" to 5'9" reach.

Jeffrey and Mike demonstrating the big span crux. There are options to make the height-dependent span but climbers with an ape index less than 5'7" may not be able to make it.
