Sit down start on two sloping crimps on the east side of the boulder. Find a way to pull up to the sloping crimp up high and left, and then make your way up the arete until you can hit the good crimp out right on the north face of the boulder. From here, you are good to go. Topout however you wish.
This is just west of The Cube, before you have to mount any large boulders.

This can be done via a super low start, kinda gimmicky, but adds fun moves and crazy beta. Left hand on the left face below the double pockets and right hand on the low corner of the arete, it goes around V5. Most likely too cramped for the taller folks.

The low start awkward, but super fun, if that makes any sense. The top out provided a little more spice then expected.

Ultra low start is super fun. I'm 6'2" and didn't find it cramped at all. I used a low right outside heel hook on this little nubbin' counter flagged my left foot crossed under. Made it more tall person friendly.

I only do this from the low start, right hand has a really good thumb catch and there is a good left foot underneath and a good right heel hook. I mix it up by going with the right hand first or left hand first.

Top still dirty. Will try to brush some lichen next time, if I can remember a brush!
