Last Slip, Avon - wrong photo?

I just noticed that the photo on UKC for Last Slip (E3 5c) looks suspiciously like the second pitch of Ffoeg's Folly.  I confess that I haven't done p2 of either route, so can someone either correct my impression of the line, or find a better photo?

The climber in the photo is not on Last Slip. If you look down and right of the climber, you can see a small overhang (not the one crossed by the climber's ropes) with a seam (looks like a thin crack) starting on the left hand side of it and going up for a bit. Last Slip pulls over the left hand side of that overhang and continues up the groove above it. The right wall of the groove looks smooth in the photo, and has small bushes peeking over its right hand edge. Hope this helps

You're right. I've not done LS, but I have done FF and recognise the picture as pitch 2.
