Fun boulder problem like route. The route starts in the orange stone just left of a gnarled oak tree (yes, the tree is off for full value). Climb on flat square edges to the big ledge. Chalk up and then move up and left following a pencil thin fused crack on flat two pad ledges to a two brick sized orange block in the middle of the face. You could try to climb the chossy, dusty crack to the right, it does go but it isn't very good that way.
Also, watch your backside. If you fall pulling up the rope on the second or third clip, you may quickly become intimate with the tree and I don't think it will call you in the morning. Clip the 2nd from a good left side pull and you will be alright.
Anotner short route on the boulders under the main wall. From a distance the boulders look like the heads of Bert and Ernie (hence the name) and this route is on the short wide Ernie boulder. It is dead center on the orange and grey face that faces the parking lot, just to the left of the older, established 5.11c.
Three bolts to a vertically equalized chain and ring style anchor.
