There are 2 crack climbs right of Bosker Boozeroos.
The 1st crack just right of Boozeroos is an open book, about 5.8, not listed in the guides. This is the line marked as #2 in the Route Topo Photo.
The 2nd crack to the right is the 5.10+ climb marked as "Squeeze Chimney" in the guidebooks. It is the slot to the crack on the smooth face right of the corner. It angles left to the corner near the top. This line isn't shown in the Photo.
Both climbs can be done from the same anchor.

Good information, George. I suspect the real "Squeeze Chimney" route is the 5.8 corner route. I've changed the rating here on this route to 5.8 to clear up any confusion. "Boy What Nice Fellows" is apparently the lightning-bolt crack you describe as 10+ in your comment here but I don't think it's really 11b...
