Description 

UG Boulder is a great boulder to warm up on. It usually bakes in the sun so the best time to climb it is in the evening or night with a hand lamp. It has a few easy problems and 2 harder problems. Expect slab problems on majority of the block. Above the classic route Peebles (V5) is a huge dish you use to top out WATCH OUT this dish has a cactus in it if you reach too deep. There also seems to always be a termite highway to the left of this route.

Getting There 

This boulder is across from the PlumTree house. If you cross Tower rd coming from the main check in lobby. You will drive/walk up towards the huts and this boulder will be on your right as the road veers right. ( very obvious can't miss)

Start on arête on a sidepull and a crimp. Probably the second and third move which is a slap with the right hand both moves to move up the arête is the crux. If you hang on long enough to get by that the rest is cake walk. Fun problem and one that if your staying close you should jump on. According to the guide, "The problem was named after the British officer who was the commissioner of Virgin Gorda and was also an early land developer.
