Getting There

See the Getting There for the Lower Tier. At the final fork (currently step 7), go north. You'll follow an even fainter climber's trail for about 100 yards, and will then want to hop up some even larger boulders than the ones at the lower tier. It is possible to hop up without needing to rope up; it might just take a bit of navigating (really not that bad though unless you're really green).

Supposedly, you can also climb plumb line and scramble/boulder/solo, but don't quote me on this if you end up needing to rope up.
