This area is "a tall section of cliff that gains good exposure over the trees and thus dries quickly after a rain. This also exposes it to the sun making it very hot in the summer. The routes generally go to the top of the cliff and offer great views." according to Mike Williams.

Getting There 

From the Fern pulloff walk down past the big cave with My Stinking Brain and Air Apparent. Two Bag Face is the most prominent first feature, but Preservation of Wildlife is the first route on the wall, just left of the Arete.
