Also known as the third tier, this crag has a handful of great sport routes over steep, featured rock. The lines here have some of the best quality stone at the Graveside Matter. The wall gets morning shade and afternoon sun.

Getting There 

Located above the Lower Tier, follow the main trail into the canyon to the Graveside Matter Slab, walk up and west then hike west along the rim from Too Much Cock Not Enough Lycra.

Bone Ronguer 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  Utah : Cedar City : ... : Upper Tier
This beautiful line on flawless limestone is left of and shares anchors with Dancing Skeleton. Holds are sharp, crimpy edges with a hard start and another crux getting past the 4th bolt. However, almost every move is 5.10. This really is a superb climb. Kudos to the first ascensionist!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
