Too artistic to be helpful, but here ya go...

Description 

Start verrrrry bottom-left of main boulder face on crimps. Use some small crimps to pop out to jugs and traverse the entire boulder, finishing up the right arete (same as hemlock arete). For another fun variation, go up slam dunk (v5) before you get to the right arete. Neither have definitive cruxes. Just a route on a boulder... Great rock and fun movement.

Location 

Main face of Hemlock Boulder. Starts in the little cave that goes underneath the boulder to popeye, etc.

Protection 

Second variation is probably a bit easier, but pad the root underneath as it is a well known butt destroyer if you fall on the 5 finish. Either way you go the top out is tall, but relatively easy climbing. Probably Best to have quite a few pads unless you are confident enough on the lower section to only pad the finish.
