Description

The Upper Tier is the direct up canyon continuation of the North Rim Sport crags. This section of Mill Creek includes the Young Guns Wall, the Pie For Strength Area, Eagle's Head Butress, the White Wall, and the Tombstone. Expect to find sporty face pitches off the ground, climbing through bomber stone, leading to the weakness systems above. The features high on the wall are as good as they appear!

Getting There

Follow the North Rim approach and continue up canyon along the base of the wall once past the Pirate's Cove sector of the North Rim. 45 minutes to an hour from the car will see you at the start of the Upper Tier.
