The "Lower Tier" of the Roaches is not actually the lowest tier, as there are rocks much closer to the road known as the Five Clouds. The Third Cloud has several climbs, including three classics.

Getting There 

From the usual entrance gate for the Lower Tier turn left immediately along a grassy track. Follow this for about 1/3 of a mile. The largest of the five outcrops is known as the Third Cloud.
