The Upper Tier is the most prominent section of cliff seen from the road or in the town of Jackson. This section of cliff tends to be steep but is broken by small ledges. The Upper Tier can be accessed by walking around the left side of the Vlaad Wall then uphill for 50 yards or taking a fixed line in the gully between the Sap Wall and the El Wall.

Really scenic crag with nice views of the town even from the deck. It looks like there is lots of potential for other routes on this wall. Just be careful walking around, there are a lot of leaves and loose rocks to roll your ankle on or set rolling down the hill.

There is also a large nest up and right of J-town that looks suspiciously like a peregrine nest, but it did not appear active (I hope).
