Description

More grainy, slightly less broken and more monolithic than the Upper Tier, the Lower Tier is home to the super-classic Valkrie, while further right there are such classics and test-pieces as The Mincer, Smear Test, The Death Knell, and Commander Energy.

Getting There

You pass the Lower Tier on the right as you head up to the Upper Tier, it's behind the Don Whillans Memorial Hut.
