The Tiers consist of long, often continuous, low walls in the forest south of the road. The walls range from less than 2 meters (the end of Marshmallow Rock) to the tall wall in the middle of the Second Tier (15 meters). In general, the problems here are often slabby (e.g. the Mountain Bike Slabs), but sometimes relatively high (e.g. Moby Dick (V1) or Twice Shy (V2)). Several harder lines are here, as well (e.g. Superball).

Getting There 

On the downhill side of the eagle lake access road - LHS as walking from cypress bowl road. A 1KM sign on the road indicates where a trail begins and reaches the first tier - the logo boulder is first encountered from here.
