Description 

Up and left of Coin de la Souris is another buttress (The Hidden Buttress). This wall is separated from Gully #1 Buttress by a gully (which can be used to descend from the Gully #1 climbs).

P1: Climb a shallow left-facing corner to a ledge (5.6; 50').
P2: Climb the obvious right-facing corner above until you can step left to a birch tree on a ledge. Step right and layback flakes to gain a slab, which is climbed to the top (5.6).

Location 

Up and left of Coin de la Souris is another buttress (The Hidden Buttress). This wall is separated from Gully #1 Buttress by a gully (which can be used to descend from the Gully #1 climbs).

Descend down and right to the top of Gully #1 Buttress (roughly the top of Lead Poisoning), then go down the gully separating Hidden Buttress from Gully #1 Buttress to the base of the route.

Protection 

Carry a standard rack.

To get to the Hidden Buttress from the base of Buttress #1, hike left and up steeply (past "Mice & Men"'s corner) to a steep gulley, with moss-covered boulders, that runs up along the far left side of Buttress #1.
