Middle Finger is a ridge of rock that runs north-south. This area refers to the west face of that rock, which is the Middle Finger Wall proper.

Getting There 

When hiking up the summit trail from south to north, there is a small trail that forks off to the left and gradually heads downhill. Follow this trail for a while. It eventually goes down some steeper terrain and then skirts the bottom of Middle Finger Wall.
