Tricky moves on the traverse right on the upper part of pitch 2...My partner described the crux move shortly off the belay down low as a "tall person's move"..I'm not usually much for that excuse but I had to agree with him, I could barely do it on second, and that was with the benefit of using a slot where he had a yellow alien as a hold..

having led p2 today i can attest to the validity of the "tall person" comment, though i think it would be more accurate to say it's particularly difficult for a shorter person. i'm 5'10" (average climber height) and i just barely managed to stick a #1 camelot in the crack above the slot before pulling the move, so i had the slot open to use as a handhold. i have no idea how you would do this move without using the slot.
