This sector is comprised of the east-facing wall and deep, dark slot cave you first encounter at the top of the Fortress Trail. It is the westernmost flank of the amphitheater, and is in the sun until around 1:00 pm on most days, making it a good afternoon area in the hotter months, or a good morning area in the winter.
The Fortress Nature Trail drops you off right at the base of the Pummeling Wall. There will be three routes directly in front of you. The Pummeling itself is out right about 100 feet on a blank, tan face.

This alluring line climbs the steep, southeast-facing blue/white wall about 40 feet right of Lois Lame, ending at a double-bolt anchor under a small roof between some large, cracked pillar-type features. Though it appears ultra-overhanging and blank from the ground, the line is blessed with great deep pockets, hidden from below, and doesn't climb as steeply as it looks.Start by rockaneering up and to the right of an ugly cleft/chimney full of choss.
