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.

Getting There 

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.

Coral Crack V0-1 4+  CO : South Platte : ... : The Coral Slab
This is a super easy, straightforward, warm-up crack with perfect hands and fists. Top out by going up and left out of the crack, or top out by going right a little higher and bear hugging the boulder on top. Just walk off to the left and repeat until your tired, or do a more involved boulder problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
