The is the first area on the left from the summit ridge trail. It is identifiable by a cave with some very fun-looking overhanging routes (which can be top-roped). The rock is solid and the area is popular, so expect crowds (and sometimes ghetto-blasters).
This area is perhaps 5 minutes from the Practice Wall along the summit ridge. This area is concentrated with several walls and The Fortress is the first on the left.
