Description 

The start consists of opposing sidepulls, and the crux is to hold on to one of them while reaching high for another sharp sidepull. Grab it with your right and lay off of it to work right foot up to the original right hand. Flag the left foot, stand up and rest your left hand in a nice horizontal. The next obvious hold occurs where the boulder's face backs off the vertical and it resembles a mini-runnel which can provide a fingerlock. However, you may consider using it for another sidepull as you squeeze a sloper with the right, work the feet onto a very thin section of the face and throw for the finishing jug.

Location 

This route is immediately right of Penny Pincher. There appears to be some mention of this problem in the discussion of Penny Pincher. Another website calls it Fingerlock Face, but the first ascentionist has stated that's not correct and called for something "original". The back of the Penny Boulder is an easy walk off.

Going up with the right hand to the dish is the easiest way and is a nice warm-up V2. If you want a harder variation: sit start on the sidepulls, and go up with your left hand to the dish.

I'm fairly tall, and I felt (as strange as this sounds) that it was easier to start this from a sit and throw for the high RH sidepull.
