This is could be a slight eliminate, but its straightforward enough to be acceptable.

You will climb this as a direct line, and once you reach the top, go left or right to make the top out easier... you'll see what I mean...

Start on the back, downhill, tall face. walk over to the middle, right end of the face. look for a long right facing sidepull slash, and then take a few steps back to the middle. look for a small pinch-loaf about 5.5 feet off the ground with a small stone pebble in the top for a flat place to openhand crimp with a left hand. This is where you will match to start.

find small feet and make a long move straight up to a good rail.

(this is the possible eliminate part... you could potentially move out right to a slopey ledge and then work right to topout there, but instead the line goes directly up. using said ledge as a foot while topping out is fine, but trending right to the ledge to topout is not the problem...)

Once matched on the rail, toss straight up again to a tiny seam. at the seam move up to the top of the boulder to the right to a loaf block where you will find knobs to help in the thin top out.
