Description

The Upper Tier is a tall piece of sandstone about 90 feet tall 100 feet across. Most of the routes are top rope due to the fact that it is unsafe to put bolts on the sandstone face. To reach the top from below, trek up the 3rd class gully on the left side of the rock. Usually you'll set your anchor from a tree, though old bolts are present at the top of the right-most climbs. The obvious crack in the middle of the rock is known as Chouinard's Crack (5.9) and serves as an easy reference.
