(This line starts very low. off the start move right into the thin crimps and then climb directly up to the lip. For the finish traverse a bit to the right to gain the clean knobs to the mantle.)
Sit start low and almost under the boulder on the large jug slot. Move right onto the two crimp-slashes big enough for four fingers and with enough purchase for 3/4s of a pad for each finger.
Either Bump through or make a big dyno move with your left hand up and out to another crimp overhead (crux).
Move up and right (more crimps) to eventually gain the sloper at the lip of the boulder.
from the sloper, traverse the lip to the obvious knob to the right and then top out.
Look for "Parlier's Problem" on the back of the boulder, and then walk to the right of the boulder for about 10 feet. you will be on the "corner" of the A.V.P. Boulder more or less. the sit start is very low and on two crimp-slashes big enough for four fingers and with enough purchase for 3/4s of a pad for each finger.

Does this go left or right from the start? Description says left, but pictures make it look like it means right... Thanks!

Michael, what I was attempting to describe the description is to move with your left hand first to get up through the grim little crimps. You are correct that the whole problems trends to the right as you climb it, and I can totally see how that is confusing. I'll update it to clarify.
