Description [Suggest Change]
The Triple Tier Area includes a number of crags including The Fist, the Undertall Wall, The Sail, the Laughing Man, and the namesake three-tiered cliff comprised of the Chimney Sweep Wall, the Middle Class Wall, and the gem of the area, The Upper Echelon (aka Old Aid Wall). Rock quality is variable between these crags - some of the best can be found at the Upper Echelon - so bring a helmet, and a light rack isn't a terrible idea, either, as some lines are mixed or full-on gear protected.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Head west from Ted's Place on CO-14 for about 15 miles, parking on the eastbound side of the road just before the tunnel. Head up a faint trail heading southeast to reach the Upper Echelon, Middle Class, and Chimney Sweep walls, and over the saddle just past the Upper Echelon to reach The Sail. The Fist is located on the east side of the river, as well as the Undertall Wall, which lies adjacent to The Fist.
