Description 

Start to the left of Mice and Men.

P1: Wander up the face and belay near an obvious "V" notch in the big ceiling/overlap that is to the left of Mice and Men (5.4).
P2: Climb through the ceiling/overlap (crux), then move right and climb the arête that is just left of the Mice and Men corner (5.5).
P3: Scramble to the top of the buttress as for Mice and Men (4th class).

Location 

Start to the left of Mice and Men.

See Webster's 2nd (1987) guide page 363.

The mouse names on the buttress refer to the 1971 horror movie "Willard."
