Description 

The tallest region of the wall, roughly in the center-right region of the Upper Town Wall. The main trail ends at the left side of this wall, near the base of the Davis-Holland route, and just left of a large boulder-talus field.


Getting There 

From the Lower Wall parking, follow the train tracks to the GM area. Walk right past the start of GM and follow the obvious path uphill to the base of the wall.
