BETA PHOTO: The Back (West side) of the Warwarsing Boulder: 1....

Description 

Greene and Russo provide the following description of this climb: "Start on low horizontal. Climb face." In the drawing they have included the three rocks at the base of the boulder and indicated this climb as being left of all of them. The climb that they identify as starting over the middle rock includes the instruction, "Climb straight up the corner." There's no corner anywhere near the middle rock, so in short, I have no idea if this is what they were describing, but I'm very open to outside input. They also rate the climb V0, but I don't think that any of the face climbs on the back of the boulder go easier than V1.

Anyway, Start on low horizontal. Climb face.

Kidding, there are three large rocks at the base of the right side of the boulder, start with your hands in the low horizontal flake above the middle rock. Reach up and right to a good hold (crux), continue, up and left to top-out above.
