Description Suggest change

I had been eyeing this beautiful south face on the Buttress for some time looking for a path up. I could see these mushroom-like protrusions coming out of the smooth face but at the time I was not advanced enough to get to them so I looked for alternative routes. I came up with an approach that took me up and far right. Then, locking a foot into the huge crack at my feet, I reached far out to my left with both hands putting my body at a 45 degree angle. Now the scary part - cutting my anchoring foot loose and hoping I could hold on! After several tries I did and was then able to use one of the mushrooms for a foot and go from there! That was the crux for sure, but getting up, balanced, and completing the next moves to the top can be tricky for sure.
