Description 

This is the hidden corridor behind the wall with Bird of Fire, and is home to a number of quality crack climbs despite their ignominious names. There also exists a handful of runout face climbs that rarely see any action.

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.

half-swallowed by the terrific OW finish of Crack 6

Crack 6 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Isles Corridor - Left Side
Cool, burly route. Splitter as the others in the Corridor, but not as straight forward. The climb starts off with 5.9 hand/fist jamming but becomes increasingly more difficult as the crack widens. The crux is three-quarters of the way up at the roof/bulge. Climb through the roof with awkward fist and arm bar moves while stemming your feet on face holds. This part is burly! Over the roof is more wide-crack climbing to the top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
