Description 

Gets only one star because it may be viewed as contrived, by boulder snobs and nay sayers since you top out through cool slopers instead of traversing to weak holds 5 feet to the left... just climb...

Stand start in front of the two side-by-side close trees on the back side of the uphill end nose of the boulder. Look for the slopers you can "hug" on that are in front of the trees on the bulgy arête-like blunt portion of the boulder. Hike high feet on the traversing low ledges. Move up and trend left through various slopers, and traverse feet left along ledges.

Once you find the left hand crimp, stop traversing (you should be able to lean into the slab at this point and not use hands...)and move straight up through slabby feet and slopers to gain a slim, fun top out.
