Which Pulley? Or is it the belt?

I have an '08 that has had a slight "belt" squeak for a while. It has gotten much worse lately and I want to get rid of it. Outside temp nor engine temp affect it. Raising the hood and listening does not really help much with pinpointing where exactly the sound is coming from. I don't want to start replacing pulleys and tensioners, and belt if it is only one. I will no doubt replace the belt when I do the job but is there a sure fire way to determine which pulley, if any, is the culprit?

I would replace the belts and tensioners but there can also be a damaged roller on a lifter that causes the exact sound of a belt squeak.
