Description 

This is the left (west) side as looking into it from the approach. The routes are mostly crack climbs, most being creatively named using numbers, although a few exciting face climbs exist here as well. Descent is via an easy downclimb via the aptly named Descent Crack (5.2).

Getting There 

Approach as for Isles in the Sky aiming for the left side of the face. Walk around left of the route Bee Gees and then scramble over blocks to enter the corridor proper.

Crack 5 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Isles Corridor - Left Side
Great, splitter route! Rated 5.9+ in the Vogel Joshua Tree guide but so straight forward that 5.9 is more apt if you've wired your handjamming technique. Towards the top the crack forks: continue up the left side for more of the same handjamming (5.9) or go right for a steep fingers section (5.10a/b). Take the right fork for an exciting, pumpy finish (highly recommended)!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
