Big fingers are nice for this climb. I have thin fingers and have an easier time with Red Zinger

The best pitch of the three pitch Nabisco wall classic: Waverly- Butterballs-Butterfingers.

For the first half of the climb several diorite bumps provide some small sloping feet that at least provide something to stand on. There are good fingers through out this part. Then the crux is rattling fingers with little but the crack for feet. This section is short, and if you get to the flare above it, then you got it made.

I agree on the red zinger comment. while most of butterballs is straight forward, it was always the off fingers near the top for me. I have very small hands which was always good on routes like tales or short circuit. btw who ever gave the detailed beta on red zinger re left hand in pod, reach with right was very accurate in my book.
