At the moment about 5'4". This is the interesting bit though. This time last year he was 5'8". Rare genetic condition. Likely to be under 5' within the next 2 years.

There are loads of good short-arse climbers. Lots of talented children, you might see some at a climbing wall. Then there's people like Lynn Hill. Shortness is rarely a valid excuse for failure on a given route, as you'll tend to find that whatever your height, someone shorter than you has done that route with ease.

Joe Brown was short, when he couldn't reach a hold, he just climbed up to it.

Just googled 'Leo Houlding height' and it came up with this.

Love the way that he's answered 'N/A' to the question of height and ape index!

Dawes is short, I believe he uses levitation.

I've stood next to him and I reckon Leo is about 5' 11" to 6' ish. He could do with a pie or two inside him though...

That's not going to stop me from using it though

McClure says he has been climbing since he was 2. No wonder he is so damn good :D

This makes no sense because Chuck Norris has no height as this would imply he has limits, which is of course ridiculous.
