Coral Sea, see!
The crux of Coral Sea is like climbing a refrigerator. It involves a bear hug sequence in which both hands use side-pull slopers with the friction and position of the edges of your fridge.
Once established over the roof, the flat sidepulls continue for many more moves. After 15 feet or so, a crimp offers a chance to actually grab onto something. Despite its small nature, it feels like a jug. The climbing remains pumpy to the end.
This is perhaps one of the most friction dependant climbs on the wall. Flat slopers, underclings, and weird foot sequences set Coral Sea apart as a unique classic.
Climb up the ladder. Four climbs start from the raised ledge. Coral is the second route from the right.
8 Bolts--Many chose to stick clip the second bolt. This is the bolt way up over the lip.
The crux of Coral.
Pumpy climbing high on the route.

A slightly harder variation is to finish out the roof via Man Overboard. It probably makes it a 13c. FA - John Mallery. He had a name for it, but I can't remember it.
