P1 spawns next to him
Build a tight BAW pile of 4 frags+4 plasma
P1 has full inventory and overshield.
Overload for a Checkpoint by killing P2 many times.
CP.
BAW launch
Profit

Difficult? yes.
Well, I did some experimentation with that setup in the first hallway on Cairo, where you encouter just the same ledges.
In my opinion, those ledges are way too small to get you a successful BAW. As you know, you need at least a certain angle between the pile and the wall to be able to be blown through the glass. However, this ledge is so thin that this angle is close to 0 degrees, which results in blasting you away parallel to the wall. I don't say it's impossible, but for a successful BAW in this place you need some strange things to happen, in other words, you need to get damn lucky.
