Description

King Coral is a fun and pockety route common to the style on this particular wall (the Swiss Cheese Wall). The crux is pulling the bulge near the top and working to the anchors on vertical to slightly overhanging terrain. The lower section feels 5.10c-ish and is really fun with lots of good jugs and pockets.

Location

From the pullout that is about 2 miles down from the Cactus Cliff road, find a faint trail marked by cairns and head up moderately steep terrain until you reach the limestone cliffs. Take the left fork and pass the Heaven Wall. King Coral is near the middle of the Swiss Cheese Wall and marked by all red hangers (the wall should be easy to find based on its name!).

Protection

The 9 homemade hangers and 2 anchor bolts have been replaced. This was rebolted in 2015.The hardware is courtesy of the ASCA. Consider a donation today @ safeclimbing.org.
