The photos above are NOT for Laser. See this discussion: mountainproject.com/v/alabama/...

They should probably be moved or deleted for clarity.

The guy bending over is climbing Laser, which is directly next to Bird's Nest Crack. The pictures posted for this route are wrong, they are of Exit Stage Right.
