Description

A long, south-facing sheltered wall with 40+ routes, mostly moderates, that's a good choice on those cold windy days all too common at Joshua Tree. Due to the many routes here the area has been broken into Corral Wall - Left Side and Corral Wall - Right Side which will hopefully help in locating the climbs more easily.

One drawback to this area is it's popularity and density of climbs which pretty much assures a crowd on weekends. That said, a visit mid-week may find you in solitude.

Getting There

Drive east past the Feudal Wall/Short Wall and park in the signed Rattlesnake Canyon Picnic Area. Walk east from the parking area to join a large wash (this is the Rattlesnake Canyon drainage), which is followed south (right) for about a 1/4 mile to a distinct right bend in the wash. The trail to the Corral Wall continues straight ahead (west) up and over a rocky notch to the Corral Wall which is hidden from view on the approach. Plan on 10-15 minutes to approach if all goes well.

Heading left (south) and up slabs (beside beautiful, deeply carved pools) instead of continuing straight to the rocky notch will lead further up Rattlesnake Canyon and access Rattlesnake Buttress, The Pyramid and the outer reaches of the northern Wonderland.

A bit more approach beta.... When looking for the above described "notch", look for a distinct V-shaped notch on the horizon in the forward/right direction of the wash that you have been following. No need to make any sharp turns to see this from the wash. Mar 12, 2012

A nice place, especially when it's cold everywhere else. Oct 8, 2006
Great wall to climb on BUT it really seemed like the grades were soft by a couple letters at least. We climbed most all the recommended routes and loved 'em! Dec 10, 2004
