Default core training upper back

hello i was wondering,

i do a couple of back exercises like back extensions... but they seem to mainly train the lower back

how do you train the core musculature of the upper back?

You want lats? You gotta go wide. I recently started trying more pullups (damnit) and heavy free weight rows. Tbars work well. I want a roadmap back there.
