Coke Explosion is a fun route with short cruxes with the last pitch being the only throw away. To get to the 1st pitch make a tricky high step move to get on an easy slab to a big ledge. There is an anchor to make the down easier.
Pitch 1: Climb a easy right slanting ramp past a tree to a short crux section 5.9.
Pitch 2: Climb a left facing big fingers/tight hands flake above the belay (5.10) making it to a good rest then head toward the short offwidth section to a big finger section to the belay.
Pitch 3: Climb the chimney and then a 5.9 hand section making your way left to another chimney to the top belay from a tree up and left of the climb
Rap the route with 2 60m ropes starting from a slung tree to the right of the route making 3 rappels to get down. If you have 70m ropes it only takes 2 rapples
2 each from fingers to big hands, a #4, #5, #6, long slings
