Description Suggest change

Middle Tier is the band of rock directly on top of the Lower Tier. One can sramble up the left side of the Lower Tier to reach the base. 3rd class scambling up the left side can get you to the top to set up top-ropes or to get the base of the Upper Tier. A fall descending the 3rd class rock could be serious. Two routes exist although I imagine much of the face could be top-roped.

Getting There Suggest change

See directions to Lower Tier to reach these cliffs. A three minute scramble up the left side of the Lower Tier gets you to the base.
