This is an excellent boulder with two stout lines in the main gully on the backside of Baldy. It also has one easier line. The left-most route is "The Calm Before the Storm" V8/9 FA Greg Parker; the route to the right of this route is "Wife's Wrath" V8 FA Greg Parker; the route to the right of "Wife's Wrath" is called "Deceptively Easy" V2. The first two routes are both three star problems (***) the last route is fun, but probably gets no stars. "The Calm Before the Storm" is crying for a sit down start. There is a low-left rail that could mave into the low pocket and then up. This SDS would be V11/12 no doubt.
From the backside of Baldy, simply walk down the gully in the main area. The boulder is on the left. In order to find the backside, you may need a little local beta. The gully is just down the hill from "Scary Trees" V8, if that helps at all.
