That's Skyline Traverse...not Lower Skyline Direct.

I believe it is actually the direct variation of the traverse.

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.
