This is a small broken cliff band on the backside of the obvious slabby sandstone ridge seen to the east of the coral canyon golf course. This is a good winter climbing area as routes are in the sun from morning until mid afternoon. The rock is sandstone and is similar to what is found in the Green Valley Gap. There are probably between 10 and 15 routes here, most of which are easy to moderate in dificulty. The rock quality ranges from bullet hard in some places to super chossy in others. A hard hat is definately recommended due to the fact that I don't think these routes get much traffic.
To get there take I-15 to Highway 9 (the one that goes to Zion), from Highway 9 turn south at the first light onto Telegraph St. from Telegraph St. take the first right into Razor Ridge Park (there is a little fishing pond here), park in the parking lot for the park. Now directly across Telegraph Road from the parking lot is a small paved road heading towards the obvious sandstone slabs, follow this road past a sewage pumping station then where the road curves slightly to the left continue streight through the brush to the base of the slabs (you will cross a little trickle of water just before reaching the slabs). Once you reach the slabs, turn right and follow the base of the slabs for about 1/4 mile then hike up and over the slabs and look for the bolts on the broken cliff band you will encounter.

Team Awesome 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a UT : Saint George : Coral Canyon Ridge
This route follows 4 bolts through pocketed sandstone to a two bolt anchor on the ledge above the route. There are two distinct cruxes at the third and fourth bolts. The top half of the route climbs through sandstone of excellent quality but the bottom half is pretty chossy (I tried to clean all the loose rock off, but I'm sure there is more to be done)....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
