Description 

The Lower Tier has some more challenging routes up to 5.9+. The rock is good quality but the routes are notably dirtier than the ones at Upper Tier due to run off from rain. With long webbing or static rope, you can setup top ropes from trees at the top of the cliff.

Getting There 

Follow the trail down from the center of Upper Tier.

Look for the thin crack/seam that starts behind a tree about 30 feet left from the right hand side of Lower Tier. Follow this crack, past some horizontal cracks to the top. The crux is about half way up when it feels like options for feet are thin and there are not many face holds.The start of the climb is a bit hard to protect because the crack is so thin. Placement options are much better higher on the route. If you lead it, make sure to have a good spot. Top rope setup is easy on trees a...[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
