Lower Skyline Direct is around the corner from this to the left. You can traverse to this spot by starting up LSD to a belay spot and continue traversing right (as Tony mentions in the comments on LSD. 2nd Ed, page 139). In that case, it would be a link-up between an LSD variation and Skyline Traverse. But this spot is the start of Pitch 1 of Skyline Traverse (2nd Ed, page 162).

Also, the start of The Tomato That Ate Cleveland (5.9) is visible on the right side of the photo. Nov 12, 2014

I believe it is actually the direct variation of the traverse. May 28, 2014
