Southwest face holds Diamond Dogs and another unfi...
Sit start on the southwest side of the boulder on top of a small, flat rock. Use a high right hand crimp and left hand sloper/pinch. Your feet are tucked behind the rock on a good shelf. Head left to good holds and then back right to the top. Or, from the start, fire straight up to a good hold. It is an OK problem.
FA info: I wandered into this boulder and saw a faint chalkmark on the right arÍte but nothing on this line. I cleaned the holds and had some fun. Let me know if you have previous ascent info.
This is 50 yards directly west of The Mace Boulder and across the creek. It is easy to find. The Southwest face holds this problem and another (Reach Out) that starts at the same spot but moves left (V7).

Ahhhh yes, I did the left variant to this boulder years ago. I think I called it "Reach Out" or something, we thought it was a bit obscure to include in the guidebook, so it was omitted.
I started on those same holds and did a big rock over reach move to gain that left arete. A one mover that seemed more fun for the tall folks. V8/9 might be a bit steep, V7ish IMO.
