The name given in Eric Bjornstad's Desert Rock for the walls along the Potash Road from Williams Bottom to Culvert Canyon. There is no real concentration of climbs, rather a scattering of a few routes. For the most part this section of the Potash Road has southern exposure making it a good winter climbing scene.
Follow directions for the Potash Road. Middle Earth is the designation of walls begining at William's Bottom which is the second campground along HWY 279, extending down river to Culvert Canyon.
