This is a sub-optimal way to end pitch 2. If you keep cruising up 5.easy terrain for a few more meters you can belay from an epic lunch ledge. This makes the last pitch a scramble.
Agreed, This is, I believe, where the guide has the pitch end. This photo was taken for the Access Fund Conservation Team. Frankly, this belay makes a better shot and its nice to be able to see your partner cruxing up the steep section.
