The Yosemite guide has always had incorrect FFA info. For the record.....
FFA. Jonny Woodward, Rob Ward. October 1982.
The free start is a finger traverse from the right.
Edit: Orphaned, thanks for changing the FFA information above. I will leave my comment here for the time being as confirmation.

|Classic! My new favorite finger crack in the Valley, perhaps better than Butterballs- although it's not as steep, its longer, the locks aren't as good, and it's much more sustained. Solid 11d for sure. Good footwork definitely helps. For gear, you can sew it up nicely with triples in .3 .4 and .5, and then some small x4's and c3's for the start. It took us 15 minutes to get to the base after parking at cascade falls and scampering up through the trees, but it was much easier to get back down once we found the trail. Go for it!|
