Description 

This small section of wall hosts a tight clustering of routes. It is a popular toprope area, and often crowded.


Getting There 

From the practice wall, a trail leads downhill and then turns left toward David's Castle. The trail first brings you to the backside of David's Castle. Continuing down the trail and around the end of wall will bring you to the main David's Castle Wall.
