Description 

The Khan Corridor is located on the backside of the formation behind (north of) Siberia and at present all known routes are on the shady north-facing side. Routes here are shorter than at Siberia, but the rock quality is fairly good as it tends to feature lots of varnish. Genghis Khan (5.11b) and The Mongolian Lieback (5.12a) are the two recommended routes here.

Getting There 

Park in the large paved lot at Key's Corner and hike north following a well-defined trail. 1.25 miles after leaving the parking area the trail forks - left along the Boy Scout Trail, which leads to Indian Cove, and right to Willow Hole and deeper into the northern Wonderland. Take the right fork and continue hiking for another 0.60 miles and then leave the trail near the western end of Siberia. Work your way through rough terrain, following a wash, until possible to enter the corridor from the west; the climbs will be about halfway in on your right.
