Pro to 2" will sew this up. It's pretty straightforward, unlike the "rather difficult" comment in the guidebook. If you know how to handjam then you should be fine.

I find the little slab above the handcrack to be the most thought-provoking... the thought usually being something like "get some gear in now because otherwise you're looking at a fall or swing onto the ledge at the base of the handcrack."
