I know of gold fingers already would love to hear about more. I have never climbed in the meadow or Yosemite or really anywhere on gear in California.

SoCal Eastside Yosemite Tahoe whatever... I'm down to travel for good splitter finger cracks. I just don't know about them. I figure this is a fun topic you can spray a little about the rad finger cracks in Cali you've done. I want to hear :)

The Right "E" crack, 12C ..... Rincon, Kern River Valley

And

The Left "E" crack, 12C.... Rincon, Kern River Valley

Andy, I'll let you know. Right now I'm having a issue with my left leg, ( I can't stand on it!!!! ) just had a MRI, meeting with the doc's next monday ....
if it starts working, a Church Dome trip will be in order. I'll let ya know.

The Rincon is a winter spot, a good place to spend the winter without LEO interfearence.

Doesn't the title say "overhanging"?

Any specific grade range you're looking for? For hard stuff idk but I know a few good moderates in the mid-12ish range...

"Spacewalk" variation in the Tahoe area. Splitter fingers on a wall that overhangs around 7' in 90'. Have fun.

Surprised no one has mentioned Grand Illusion (5.13b) at Sugarloaf near Tahoe. Also Equinox in Joshua tree, but that is vertical if not only very slightly overhanging.

Sasquatch Crack is a boulder problem in the Valley near Le Conte Memorial which is supposed to be quite difficult. If you're at Generator Crack there is a good but short crack called Conductor across the street.

Sorry I don't have more, finger cracks that are overhanging are usually out of my price range. :)

Me at the good rest on Doggie Do
Moment of Zen at Pine Creek isn't quite as low angle as the pictures here would make it look. Very high quality route and fairly stiff for 11a...it is tips, though. Espresso Crack is one everyone has talked up to me, but I have yet to experience it. Same with that pitch on The Prow @ Cardinal Pinnacle.

Why not head out to Utah and go hard on some sandstone finger cracks if steep is what you are looking for. A fantastic one at Zion is Intruder, as is it's neighbor Dire Wolf. 2 mins from road. Totally choss though!!!! All of zion is loose, wide, and sandy ;-)

the 12d crack on Desert Gold looks fantastic at Red Rock, as does Seduction Line (definitely on the list for me once it cools off a bit).

Back to CA, the Conductor Crack across from Generator Crack is a good, stout little thing. Short Circuit or Circuit Breaker, can't recall which, the one behind Curry Village in the Valley is fun. Check out a few of the finger cracks at Snowshed at Donner Summit...Monkey Paws, Panic, etc...not exactly straight in jam cracks, but finger locks and stiff pulls...
