I am pretty sure that image is not Suction Lipectomy. Its a beautiful perfect Ow with no bottom a few feet right of the second pitch of Ralph and Bobs

The picture is of Treasures in Heaven 5.8+ FA Tom Kwasny, Chris Morrisey, JJ 2002. Suction Lipectomy is only an OW at the very top. From the top of Ralph and Bobs, look to the left about 15 feet and you see the OW portion. It is easy to traverse over and finish with this. Its oldschool 8+.

Easy ledges my ass, dirty as hell to get to the crack. The crack only just made the lower section worth it. This is more a variation of Ralph and Bobs is you want to protect it

The OW is accessed directly from the bottom on the direct protectable line. Finger size pieces will do the trick. take double fingers up to BD 0.75. What you don't use you can leave on the shelf at the bottom of the OW.
