Getting weather forecast...
This is a nice west facing wall that sits directly above Water Wall, the other sections of the Upper Tier are down stream from Fire Wall. Fire Wall itself catches tons of afternoon sun as there is a lack of living trees on the bench above Water Wall, but the routes to the left do have some big trees that provide shade once the sun comes around. The routes up here are mostly if not all sport climbs, there are about 12-15 routes on Fire Wall, a few on the next wall left and Family Man on a further section of wall.
From the upper parking area hike up the main trail for about 5 minutes. Turn left off the main trail 100 feet past a log crossing the creek (look for cairns). If you hit Water Wall you've gone just a little too far. The steep trail climbs up around the left end of Water Wall and reaches the smaller formation with Nicole's Corner. Go right for Fire Wall, left for Tim's Thumb (Family Man, etc.)
