Start on a huge head height block right on the arete. Move up and right around the tree. Big moves on sometimes sloping holds lead up over the edge of the rock behind the boulder to better holds just as the face turns to a slab. Paddle onto the slab and move right to the rock stair case to down climb.
Starts on the arete between the 2 main faces of the Heavy Metal Boulder.
Pad and spotter.

When the tree wasn't so close this problem used to be way better. I hope that tree continues to slowly come down.
