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.

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

Awesome spot! Secluded, in the shade for most/all the day, and sheltered from the wind. There was nice, green grass growing on the ground. It felt like a little oasis. The climbs are good too, and you can tick of half a dozen fun, engaging cracks in a just a few hours.
