Separated from the Middle Wall only by a short break, the West Wall boasts the first modern climbs established at the Tiers, and it has the same brand of quality face climbing guarded by fierce starts. From the top of the West Wall, views of climbers at the top of climbs on the Middle Wall (and vice versa) are inspiring.

To access the top anchors of the climbs on the West and Middle Walls, continue past the end of the West Wall and find the willow-choked 3rd class gully behind the wall. There are actually two parallel gullies there both will work, but the left one is more direct to the top anchors of Three Little Birds, while the right one is more direct for accessing the other climbs.
