The Coral Slab Rock Climbing
This is a ~10 foot slab/face with a good landing. The rock type is quite uncharacteristic of typical Sheep's Nose granite. It is very fine-grained and solid with an interesting, coral-like texture.
Located in the southeast side of Sheep's Nose, in the same general area as Two Shakes
. If you're looking at the Sheep's nose formation from the V2 roof crack (listed on M.P. as Unknown Roof
), go right (east?) about 100 yards, staying at approximately the same elevation. You should come across this as you search through the boulder field.
Climbing Season For the West Creek area.
