Alfonso, I included the "tougher for shorter people" because the guide includes it but honestly I disagree. How tall are you?
I'm 5'5" so solidly in the "shorter person" spectrum and this route was definitely not 5.12 to me. 11c felt like a stretch. I'd call it 11b. There are two very obvious crimps that, though small, making that reach pretty easy. I'm kind of stubborn about slash grades based on physical characteristics such as height. It's impossible to know if that is in fact true because I, being only one person can only comment what it feels like for a person of my height.
