Description

This small crag is tucked into the upper left (when viewed from Ophir Road) corner of the Ophir Wall. While there aren't many climbs here, there are a couple of lines that are good enough to warrant the hike up. There is also some potential for new climbs.

This wall tends to be shady in the early morning, but after that, it is in sun for the most of the day in the summer.

Getting There

Turn onto Ophir Road, and immediately pull into the large dirt pullout on your right. Park here. From the parking, walk straight up the forested hillside through a talus field. After around 10-15 minutes, you will reach the base of the wall. You can actually see the top of the Upper Tier from the parking area.
