Description Suggest change

This area gets sun most of the day. It appeared to be climbed but not so much that things are polished and such.

Getting There Suggest change

Walk east of the boulders to the end of the campsites. Get on the railroad tracks and head west. About a half mile down, a hiker's trail will be on your right. Follow this trail up to the main Tier Wall.

Per Mark Hahn: at the start of the hiker's trail, there is a large rock under a cattle fence alongside the railroad tracks. The trail climbs the rock making it easy to step over the cattle fence and continue up the trail.
