Phil Winfrey on lead. Cupped hands.

Description 

The right side of the crack sticks out more then the left side. The anchors are visible. The climbing is cupped hands with some fists.

Location 

If you are looking at the most prominent point of the buttress, go left and up to a bench where there is a small finger crack. The climb is the next one to the right.

Protection 

3 #3s and a #4 WC Friend is useful.

Fun route, but it tends to cut your feet up pretty badly.
