This is a sustained and varied 80' long hand jam and lieback. It's a right-slanting crack in the corridor behind (west of) Isles Corridor. It is listed as "Route 1203" in the Bartlett guidebook.

The rock on this route is very coarse and grainy. Protection is more fiddly than usual for Joshua Tree but reasonable. Not a very memorable route.

Surprisingly solid for all of its coarseness. Unlike many other Josh cracks there are spots you need to actually jam w/o any helper feet/features. I think a few wider pieces ( 3.5, 4 Camalot ) add to the comfort level. Harder than 10a and worthy of a send IMO.
