South Face, Lower Tier Rock Climbing
Checking out the Lower Tier
This area has a few face routes and a few cracks. Continuing all the way west on the skirt one can access the Upper Tier as well.
Park in one of the turn-outs mostly found on the right side of the road and head towards the granite. Takes anywhere from 2-4 minutes depending on the turnout. No real trail per se, then skirt the bottom of the south faces.

Starts via standing on some decaying tree trunks. Work your way up a short flake to the first bolt and do a highstep mantle to land your feet on top of the flake. The next move involves another, but easier mantle to access the second bolt which protects the upcoming crux. A couple of face moves from here leads one to easier climbing and the rap/lower bolts. Fun and well protected. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
