Description 

The hidden canyon between the back (east face) of the Dilithium Crystal and the main wall, the Crystal Corridor has a handful of decent short pitches in the easy 5.10 range.

The primary appeal of this area is its easily accessible yet reclusive nature.

Not accessible for most dogs and small children.

Getting There 

From the far left/north side of the DC, scramble up for about 50'.
