Description 

This is the upper level of the Black Corridor, separated from the lower level by a pile of boulders and an easy scramble.

Routes are listed clockwise beginning on the NE-facing wall at the pile of boulders separating the upper and lower levels to the Black Corridor, continuing up along the wall, across the upper entrance to the Black Corridor, and back down the SW-facing wall and ending at the boulders.
