This is a picture of the northeast face with the top of balanced rock on the lower left. The climb starts left of the two big boulders and continues up the center of the formation as seen in this photo. Pitch one ends just on top of the white horizontal band, and yes, the belay stance is obvious currently. If I remember correctly, there is one bolt and a slung chockstone. Continue straight up and then into the chimney that is hidden from view.
