The Lower Tier has some more challenging routes up to 5.9+. The rock is good quality but the routes are notably dirtier than the ones at Upper Tier due to run off from rain. With long webbing or static rope, you can setup top ropes from trees at the top of the cliff.

Getting There 

Follow the trail down from the center of Upper Tier.

Lurch 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  CT : Eastern Highlands : ... : Lower Tier
One of my favorite climbs at Wolf Rock, rated to a 5.9- but definately feels more like a +. The crux is the second or so move in and consists of one jug and few rollers to get over the slight overhang. Unfortunately there isn't much after the crux, making it a very short climb. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
