Nork is a popular Lobby problem, although I find it to be very height dependent. Start on the right side of the lobby, as for Willow, on the good rail. Nork goes up high with the left hand to a small crimper, above the arete hold on Willow. Now, cross through with the right hand all the way to the good crimp in the V-slot. This is painfully far unless you are super tall. Now, without matching, go directly up to a smallish crimper in the middle of the face, just left of the huge jug. Again, no matching, go way up high with the right hand to the Glue reinforced block with the two finger pocket hold. Bring the left hand up to a crimp, move the hands over the lip to more crimps, and finish by moving up to the top rail. Step up, move to the right and downclimb the easy route.

A slight variation skips the glue-enforced hold and goes straight for the lip from the mid-height left hand hold. This can probably be done static, but is most fun as a twisting dyno. Probably about the same difficulty as the regular problem.
