This face climb is located on the righhand side of the switchback just before the exit to the rockwork orange area. Sneek through the bushes to find this and a couple of other boulder problems. Shady.

So in the photo here for Shawn's Knobs...
Is the climb the V Beginner brickwork clearly seen in the foreground on the left?
Or is the climb the one in the background, behind the tree branches on the right? There is a set of "knobs" back there on the the right of Karl's Error (the dihedral). Anyone know for sure?

I believe the climb is on the back side of Karl's Error, since it has the best, obvious access to the bolts above. bring long slings to minimize rope drag.Start on large rock and gain a good, high right hand. there is a shallow horizontal rail that you get with your left, then a powerful footless move to a great slopey jug on the first "knob" gain feet and balance your way to victory
