Description

The Middle Tier: Originally home to almost all top-rope climbs, there are now four sport lines in addition to two leadable cracks. Generally different in style than the Upper and Lower Tiers, routes here are as short as the huecos are large. (See, e.g., Secnar (.12-).)

The top of the Middle Tier can be accessed by a short scramble that begins on the south south side of the tier (climber's right of the routes). The anchors generally comprise two glue-in bolts but no hardware. Please use long slings/webbing/cord (5' at least) in order to extend your top-rope! Help preserve the rock and prevent degradation by not climbing here if you cannot extend your top-rope anchor well beyond the edge. Also, do not climb here for three days after it rains - holds will break.
