This is Palisades classic one move climb. Start on the boulder below and to the right of the bulge. Swing out and dyno to the left side of the bulge and pull yourself over and up. Most people do this as a boulder problem ropeless. make sure your a solid 5.10 climber to do this.

I think i've only seen one person rope up everyone i know boulders it. As for the trad theres plenty of routes in Pali that can be Trad depending on your level of being comfortable. I just watched a kid get half way up leading on Aloha never think the impossible. Yes there are run outs but doesn't mean you can't trad it. Say some professional happened to stop threw what may seem hard to the common climber may seem simple to a 5.13 trad climber.
