Description

Follow the approach to the Lower Tier. Left Line starts 45 feet left of Right Line. The first bolt is just above a horizontal crack. Climb a steep wall past three bolts, then ramble up easier, lower-angle rock to the anchors. Lower 55' to the start.

Another warm-up for the routes on the Main Wall.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

3 of the bolts are next to perfect gear placements!?!?
The climb to the left has shitty gear and no bolts. May 29, 2014

Thin holds between jugs. Crux down low before 3rd bolt. Solid 5.8+. Nice climb. Two stars. Nov 7, 2009

This climb is reasonable. If wanting more, continue up and left from the top to the top of the next ledge- this can give access to the upper tier from the lower tier without a hike (why not climb instead).
Continuing up and left for the remainder of a rope length (or so) will take you past MANY gear placement opportunities, which for the first half would be larger (hand-to-fist-sized) cams in good horizontals and then normal gear higher. The grade might be 5.5 or 5.6.

This was the first lead that I ever did and it was great! The last portion of the climb is rather easy and getting up the first third is the tricky part. Directions are right on and the difficulty seemed to be as stated. Lots of other cool climbs in the vicinity, so it is a great place to spend an afternoon. Mar 28, 2005
