One of the highest points on the wall. Best accessed through the cave at Gotham City.

Getting There 

Head to Gotham City, head up through the cave to the top of the main wall. Walk a short distance (less than 10 minutes) following the top of the main wall to a short, squat, roundish boulder. There is a small bush, and some anchors on the top of this boulder. This is the top of the nose. There is no trail to get here, so best find a local climber to take you there.
