This is an obvious face climb that starts on the crimps you see in the photo and stays left of the large holds until you get onto the face which is a little highball and spicy (some nice exposure at the top).
Crimpy face climb located uphill from the main parking lot area (I think uphill and behind Nemesis), the Classic V5 traverse right at the parking lot). If anyone has a better description please feel free to speak up.

Wish I had a better description of this so I know if I went up it! I looked through to see if I have pictures of it from the past weekend, but alas... none. :(

Jeffrey, if I remember right, you start sitting on a big block with your feet kind of tucked into the gap b/w the block and the problem. Crux is right off the ground, and you kind of have to avoid a jug on the right on purpose. Didn't feel sketch to me at all; the climbing higher up is easy.

I've submitted a few photos to help people find this boulder from 'Patton's Arete'. I've also submitted a photo of the starting hold and general line of travel so that it is clearer. As per Julian's comment, I believe the line is meant to 'avoid' the obvious juggy flake out right on the slab.
So, basically you start sitting, matched on a juggy sidepull flake. Move left and up via some long moves betwen good crimps/edges, avoiding the juggy flake out right. Once established on the face, continue up the easy highball slab utilizing any and all holds.
Hope that helps people find and enjoy this wonderful boulder!

Thanks for the directions - this boulder can be a bit tricky to find.
FYI - I am not sure what the top is like anymore but I remember cleaning lichen as I was climbing which made it feel a bit sketch on the FA. Perhaps some of that stuff has been cleaned.
