Yes, the crack that runs up between the trees in this photo is the route that I have always called "Zig Zag", because, after the crack ends one steps left and climbs up, and then makes a "Zig Zag" series of moves to end 8-12 feet left of a chopped bolt; i.e. if one moves to the right there's a 5.8 friction move past a chopped bolt. In the past there has been a steel cable with a GIANT 'monkey link' at the top of this climb. The cable looks like it would hold a battleship, but it is(was?) tied to a 3" diameter "tree-bush".
On the far right of the photo one can see the crack portion of "Crack and Up" (above the inside corner start, and before the high-angle friction.)
