It is the V-groove that takes you off the left side of the huge ledge at the end of pitch 2. You go up left and then back right on less than great rock up to the double crack belay for the Pipe Pitch. The 5.8 crack variation goes off the huge ledge off to the right. If you have only done this 5.8 variation you might not recognize the terrain in the photo.

Ohh.... now I see where this is. He is about to pull up left, to where it is pretty exposed and cool, but easy -- then makes a right turn to the double-crack below Pipe.
