This striking crack is found on the right side of the buttress.
It begins with a over hanging left leaning crack, that becomes a right trending finger crack once you've hucked the overhang.
Takes gear like a champ, and is super fun.
On the big chick hill tower buttress, on the side that faces the main face.
Trad. Can be top roped too.

Man I remember doing this route and thinking that the crux was obviously the overhanging start. Faack! the start was the easy part! That finger crack after the overhang isn't that good and those feet suck! That being said, what as fun route!!
