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.

There is a huge right facing corner towards the left end of the cliff. Climb up to the big ledge in this corner and then step right to follow the crack straight up to a small overhang. Clear this and follow the crack above and slightly to the right to the top of the cliff.This route was pretty dirty and I ended up pulling out a lot of leaves and mud. Pretty fun none the less. Cool moves and no discernible crux....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
