Description [Suggest Change]

It's alive!!!! Wow, this rock is strange AF! Most definitely reminds me of sharp coral...don't wipe out bro! Little razor spindles of precipitated calcite cover this "flow stone". The middle of this route offers about 15 feet of good climbing but the rest is unfortunately kinda shit. It looks so intriguing from the bottom, but it just doesn't really ever "come together". Begin under a 4 foot roof and paste yourself upward into a tricky shallow left facing and left leaning corner for three bolts...awkward, insecure, unpleasant...about 12b. Next exit out right over the overlap created from the left leaning corner using some cool pinches to reach out right to a good rest horn. Above this shake, clamber up the sharp flow stone upwards for your fifteen feet of fame powering through some great underlings. Finish by tweaking up sharp scrappy holds for the unpleasant and burly crux just before the last bolt. It's short savage and sharp. Clip the chains while wishing this climb would have been more fun.

Location [Suggest Change]

Found to the west of the blue wall about 50 yards. Follow the traversing trail from below the Blue Wall belay terrace to the west around the little buttress and you'll find yourself in the Coral Gables alcove. Coral Gables is the 3rd route from the left. It starts in the shallow left facing left leaning corner that "hangs" 4 feet off the ground. There are five routes total in this small zone.

Protection [Suggest Change]

All bolts... approx 8. Chain anchors.
