It's not Driving South. No slabby boulder off to the left of the crack, which also doesn't have a lip on it's R. edge like in the photo.
I did have a similar moment in the photo the day after the 1980 or '81 bouldering contest at Santee. In fact, when I first saw this photo, I initially thought it was a picture of that day, except I and my buddy, Eric Held, weren't in it.
Eric and I throw up a rope on Driving South, flail a few times, when through the bushes come Bachar, Leclinski, Mari, Yaniro, Largo, etc., and a large retinue. Yaniro and Leclinski promptly send after tying into our rope. Bachar solos the thing, stopping part way up to add, "I don't use ropes."
