The Upper Tier has some nice low angle slabs that are great for beginner climbers. There are also some cracks and slightly steeper sections that can be led or top roped. The rock is good quality and clean.

Getting There 

Follow the Nipmuck trail from the parking on Crane Hill Rd for about 5 minutes. This will lead you to the boulder right at the top of the cliff. Descend to the right (with your back to the trail and parking) to access the base of the cliff.

Star Fire 5.1 2 6 II 7 MD 2a  Connecticut : Eastern Highlands : ... : Upper Tier
A very easy climb with great hand holds and better feet. Perfect for a beginner trying to get used to the height. It is more of a walk up and no real power or strength is needed. I had a great time learning here....[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
