There are some great problems on the campground boulder. You can't miss this thing; it is big and beautiful. My partner and I possibly put up new problems, although it's hard to imagine we were the first to do them. There's no beta I've found out there, though.
The East Face holds three problems- a slight traverse from the center of the boulder right on good crimps and sidepulls with a tiny left foot and high right to a rockover and up to a jug at the top. Another traverses from the left side on gastons, a good rail and poor feet to the center route and the same finish. The third problem starts directly below the finish on a tiny tiny right foot and slopey crimps to a slightly dynamic move to a good edge and joins the original, center route. All share holds and finish in the same place. Quality V1-V2s.
The South Face holds one problem, a V3 on an obvious vertical fissure with sharp sidepulls. No hands out left and a bad smear on the East Face around the arete with a big reach to a sloper on a 'tower-like' feature (obvious) while moving feet up and reaching for a jug up top.
The North Face has an arete problem V1 and a face problem that we couldn't do.
The West Face holds some V0 problems that are fun and a good warmup. It is also the downclimb.

Camping note: Free!. The limit is 5 days. There are a few, but not a lot of campsites, so either plan on driving another half hour to Lost Horse (and have directions), or be prepared to camp .5 miles in any direction from the campground. The water pump at this campground is not in service, so bring a filter or bring some bigger re-usable water containers. If you're there for a while you can fill up in Hamilton. Just be nice and ask!
And that boulder is rad. Although I think the description of the routes on the east and west faces should be switched around.
