I don't know that the photo is of TLAR's start...at least it's not the way I have climbed it. Back home, this made me go back to the Williams' Trapps guide--and his descriptions of the start of Harvard and TLAR. The result is that I think those descriptions of the starts are confusing. For what it's worth, consider starting off a low angle boulder at the base of the cliff, below a right-leaning crack. Seems to climb just fine from there.

The right-leaning crack in the center of the photo here is TLAR. My partners and I have gained that crack from the boulders to the lower right (it's more of an open book than it looks in this photo), and that's what I've always seen other people do, as well.
