Seems like you could add a little information other than 'its on the cliff above the boulders'.

Turn up after the big, rusty pipe on the road. Climbs an obvious fat finger/thin hand crack going up through and above a plant filled pocket. Very 5.8, if it seems harder you're missing a hold or jam. Easy to protect, lots of nuts (and rests for them) lower into .5-2 camalots, small TCUs or C3s at the bottom. Bolt anchors.

Looks like there could be more to climb above it, although we didn't give it a go. It may be worthwhile to work the crack above the anchors.

The beginning is so-so and the crack only moderately interesting. Not sure why it gets 4 stars in the book. I did go beyond the first chain anchors to climb a couple more feet of a nice dihedral, but the bulge to the ledge above is very loose and dirty. I stepped left to a new set of mussy hooks over another (new?) climb. Exactly 100 foot rap. Better to stop at the first chains.
