Description 

You started by sitting on the ground and matching both hands on an outcrop. You then lift yourself up, smear your right foot on the rock in front of you, and then wedge your left leg into a crack next to you. From there, you reach up, right next to your head, and lock your right hand on a little pocket. You then swing your weight left and place your left hand in a decent-sized hold. From there, I clipped into a runner I slung off a a C3 Camalot so that I wouldn't fall far, and continued up. The next move takes your right hand up onto a corner, and your left hand grabs the top of the boulder. After this, it's kind of a scramble to top out, and then you're done. There's a video of the route at youtu.be/z_33Z9IXAwI

Location 

On the old golf course back 9. North of golf course road. Take the turn off for the heliport, and then you should be able to see the tee-off point straight ahead of you. It's a boulder on the side of a hill, and it becomes pretty obvious from about a quarter mile away.

Protection 

Although it's a boulder problem, I protected it with a couple slings. One connected to a Gold DMM Torque nut, and the other connected to a #2 Camalot C3. This is because you'll roll down a long hill that's covered in sharp rocks if you fall.
