Corral Wall is located in Middle Canyon, a relatively short canyon near the entrance to the much larger Rattlesnake Canyon in lower Joshua Tree (Indian Cove). Corral Wall’s broad southern exposure and lower elevation makes it a prime winter destination at Jtree. Corral is a bi-wall feature with an obvious left and right side featuring 14 routes as of 2012. Middle Canyon is easily reached from the Rattlesnake Canyon parking area in well less than half an hour.
Corral Wall features several good crack climbs, i.e. High Plains Drifter (5.9) and Czech Crack (5.10a). Many of the routes were established in 1990 by Geoff Archer and company.
Park at the main parking area (restrooms) for Rattlesnake Canyon. Enter the wash to the east and turn right as if heading up Rattlesnake. Rather than turn left up the white granite slabs surrounding the steep slot canyon at the entrance for Rattlesnake Canyon, head straight for a short and easy notch at the entrance to Middle Canyon. As soon as you crest the notch, Bucket Bronco (5.10a) and Czech Crack (5.10a) will be on your right.
