It's the off width crack with optional training wheels!!

That thing is great.

Is that the flake just left of Five and Dime? If so, there is a small crack inside that allows easy progress until you get a perfect heel/toe.

thus the training wheels that scuffy_b referred to...

Copper Penny 5.10a, typical of many offwidths, the technical crux is at the thin moves (well protected) entering the wide section, which is straight forward, though not protected (a #5 doesn't go very far)

If you ignore (or don't notice) the big rail inside the OW, then the crux
becomes the OW, with a stout section where you lose the fist jam but cannot
get a knee in the crack. Probably 5.10c.

As it happens, I was unaware of that handrail when I led it.
I was belaying from the top of the flake.
What a surprise to see Ed and Gary grab that thing!
