This is the region lying between Earwax Wall and Sport Wall. Although most routes are pretty stiff if completely done, they often have more moderate first pitches that can be sampled.

Getting There 

After the trail first reaches the Upper Wall, scramble up and left past Davis Holland. The left-arching thin crack on a white wall is Dana's Arch.
