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.

Leading near the top of Grounder.

Grounder 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Isles Corridor - Left Side
Splitter left-leaning finger crack which seemed harder than 5.9 and definitely harder than Bird of Fire. The finger locks were some what tricky and hand jamming is insecure. Use your feet well and the route will seem closer to the 5.9 mark....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
