Description 

The crux lies about 20' before reaching the anchor chains, but it is marvelous face climbing the entire way.
Work up a small, left-rising, rounded corner to its top, then continue up the face, eventually heading right past a bulge to reach the anchor.

Location 

This route lies on the chocolate-colored rock 400' right of the gigantic corner of the Main Face,where the ice route FiFi's Frozen Fingers runs during the winter. This area is about 200' from the right end of the cliff.
Fifi Fingers begins at a small, rounded corner, beginning at a diminutive left-rising ramp, NOT the more obvious right-facing rounded corner that begins on a shelf 6' above the ground, which is to the right and is the start of Canine's Little Helper.

Protection 

Old, non-stainless steel bolts ca. 1995. These get buried under ice every year; the route's X rating derives from this fact. Maybe they will still hold a fall, maybe they won't. Clip (or not) at your own risk!
TR setup is easy enough: walk around the cliff to the right, then along ledge back left to an oak tree at the top of the obvious notch above and left of the anchors. It will take all of a 60m rope to TR from here, and you may want a right-shifting directional for the climbing end. There's a horizontal crack partway down the upper slab that can be used for this.
