Description

This triangle is the furthest left in the Upper Tier formation and forms the west edge of the talus gully. A large growth of extra rock with a small juniper on top divides the bottom of the First Triangle into a left and right side, and the the two main routes here start from either side of the growth. The main rappel gully is between the First and Second Triangles.

Getting There

Using the new approach trail from below (nearly completed as of 2018), the First Triangle is the first part of the Upper Tier you'll come to. It's the leftmost panel of the main part of the Upper Tier.

To approach from above, it is best to use the rappel station at the top of the Upper Tier to reach the base of the climbs on the First Triangle. The main rappel will deposit you between the First and Second Triangles. It is also possible to scramble down to the base via the talus gully next to the First Triangle, but this is steep and loose-- much less pleasant or erosion-friendly than the rappel.
