Awesome splitter cracks in taylor canyon upriver from Harmels. Rock here is the same as first buttress, granite. Good stuff.
To get to coffin crack, drive a little ways past PCP pinnicle until you see a tyrolean across the taylor river. Park in a pullout near the tyrolean. Cross the tyrolean using a pulley (the tyrolean is up high in the trees so be careful climbing up to it). Once on the other side of the river, hike about 1/2 mile to the east until you spot the "Coffin" in the rock, that is your target.

Blackwater is the second crack to the right of Coffin Crack. Start by either jamming or laying back a wide crack for 20 feet and gain a nice rest on a slab. Then begins the fun part. Jam fingers and thin hands in a shallow left facing corner for 20 feet. This is a very fun route, with the over all rock quality being better than the Coffin Crack....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
