This doesn't make much sense. There are three different boulders in the photos.
I assume that these are the the two boulders west of The Warm-Up Boulder, refered to as The Black Warm-up Boulders in Tom Moulin's Southern Nevada Bouldering Guide.

I agree it is pretty confusing. One of the pics definitely is of the fin Black Warm up Boulder.

"Smiley Face" is a V1 climb on the Black Bitch and the 2 beta photos are of the "Black Warm Up Boulders" in Tom Moulin's Southern Nevada Bouldering guidebook.
