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.

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..
