Description 

There is a crevice that makes a bomber undercling in the rock that as of November 2012 some yellow jackets have taken up residence. If you climb before their nest warms up it's ok. Or maybe the winter will take them out.

Location 

The obvious series of bolts on the slab to the left of Nemesis (the arete).

Protection 

4 bolts (maybe 5) and chains I think

This route is called Cheeky Bastard 5.7 in "Locals Guide to Rock Climbs of Northeast California." After the 4th bolt I moved left and then back right to the anchor. A friend got in a small cam on the left to protect the final move.
