Layback the short, widening finger crack to the top.
I cleaned this off thinking it would be harder. It would be decent if it were twice as big; otherwise, I am not sure I would recommend it. There may be another short climb to the left of this.
This little wall sits a little up and to the left of Oz itself on the uppermost cliff band.
It could be bouldered, but it protects well with small gear (BD 0.5 and below). This can also be led with just C3s. TR anchors are finicky, but you can sling a boulder at the top with a long sling.

Like everything on the NoSho this has undoubtedly been climbed before. If anybody wants to claim the FA and naming rights, let me know.

There are two lines here... both done by (no shock) Herb Stilman. The wall is called the Commander Salamander Wall. The line on the right is called Commander Salamander Crack, 5.6, and to the left is the Commander Salamander Slab, 5.10.

There is an awesome boulder trail that starts on top this problem and leads across the top of Oz and continues along the pipeline another 100 yards.
