The left hand starts on a subtle bumpy crimp close to the bottom of the boulder, just left of the left arete; the right hand starts in an interesting gaston mantle kind of position on the knob that's at the bottom center of the boulder. The left foot works well smeared on a round, distinct bump on the adjacent boulder to the left.

Slap your left hand up to the good, big pinch, then work your right hand out and across the boulder to the good opposing sloper side pull. Work the left hand up the left arete some more and finish it off.

This is a very good boulder problem, if it was located in Blackjack or at The Pound it would see dozens of ascents every year. As it is, it's only a 2 minute walk from the Entrance Boulders at Blackjack, more people should venture over to it.
