There are two options to set belay stations at the end of the second pitch: Inside the shaded cave (Bit awkward, but a cool respite from a hot exposure) or do the 5.8 to exit the cave and plant the 2" gear to belay on the comfy (sunny) ledge ten feet above.
This ledge is clearly visible behind the climber in this image. Do Not extend the pitch beyond that sunny ledge: Poor positions await, and you lose all communication with your second.
The rack for this route should include triples of the 2" size, especially if you intend to use the sunny ledge.
