bottom of the finger

Hello everybody.

I came across with this dialogue from the movie "Sniper" (1993).

Tom Berenger - He's there. And he's out of range, dammit!

Billy Zane - I'm looking right at the ridge we came over.
I don't see a damn thing.

Tom B. - Glance down to the bottom of the finger.

They are both using telescopes.

My question: bottom of the finger is some kind of code from the US army, a technical term or a name related with hills?
At that point, the enemy was at the lower part of the rigde.

Thanks in advance.

    I think he is simply describing the ridge as a finger of rock because of its shape

    Thank you both. I think I got it. In fact, at the bottom of the rigde there's a rock with a finger shape.
