I'm heading off to Chulilla the first week in Nov, and thinking about trying an 8a out there. Being 5'6 with a minus ape index, wondering if anyone had any suggestions? 

All my friends that have climbed 8a out there are all over 6 foot, so I don't trust their recommendations massively! 

Also keen for any other 7's recommendations that are short friendly!

I've only done two, Planeta Namek and La Pantonera, and obviously I'm a little tall...!

But, the routes there don't really seem particularly reachy and having seen you on the slate the other day, your flexibility neutralises any of my reach advantage! There tends to be plenty of holds on routes, you just have to keep on trucking.
