Hidden corridor, shaded & cool in the summer. Neat atmosphere above the road.

Getting There 

From the pullout/bathroom area (Low Standard Cave parking lot), hike up the road toward the right hand fork. When you pass Rock Island on your left, turn left and follow a small drainage bottom to the back of the wall. In front of you is a dark water streak coming out narrows about 50 feet up the wall. The narrows is the trash compactor.

Climb 3 bolts left of the water streak (5.3) then move right and into the corridor at the last bolt. There are anchors at the mouth of the narrows to belay a subsequent climbers and rap down once you are done climbing.

A most awesome place. Never sees traffic because of the isolation. A must go place with a good amount of .10s and .11s
