A two-move wonder but worth the visit for those two moves. The 4th buttress up the hill from Nemesis, it is the obvious one an the corner. The face has lichen all over with a dark, clean band up it. Start on the far right of the face as it's undercut to the left. Use the sloping holds to get through the overhang and pull around on lichen-filled holes. Traverse the break on lichen to the dean band and follow it to the top (natural pro).
