The main dihedral is Eastwind Crack. To the right...

Description 

Never crowded, this is the buttress just to the west of The Thumb and to the east of Altered States Gully. The rock on the Eastern side is less weathered than on the south face and less vegetated as well.

Getting There 

Approach as for the Thumb trail. Routes which are wholly on the Westwind Buttress start just to the right of the Thumb gully.
