Coal is a really fun route that features fairly sustained climbing and no really show stopper cruxes.

Start up a face immediately right of the flake system on mostly good holds. I thought the crux was just above this with some balancy quick movement on good holds to a good horizontal break. Sustained climbing above takes you to the anchors.


When entering The Shaft, this route is on the left side, immediately after you step down through a little pinch point. The route climbs a face, immediately (climber's) right of a left-facing flake system.


Bolts, maybe 8 or so. Bring 10 and 2 anchor draws just in case.
