Description

The Upper Tier is home to some of the classic and most aesthetic routes on the wall. Despite its proximity to the ground and the Lower Tier, it receives much less traffic, possibly due to the exposed nature of some of the routes. Despite most of the routes being clustered above the Las Gamuzas & Sirenos areas, some other routes have been climbed along the rest of the wall, although there’s very little information about them. The area spans about the same width as the Lower Tier (~1300 feet) and contrary to the former, and excluding the Segundo Piso area, it mostly features technical faces with very thin and incipient cracks.

Getting There

The easiest way to access the Upper Tier is by climbing the 1st pitches of either “Las Gamuzas” or “Sirenos Crack”. If you wanted to approach the wide garden terrace on the right side, it’s better if you climb the 3 pitches of the “Las Dalias” or "Las Hormigas" routes.
