BETA PHOTO: Overview of The Roaches


More grainy, slightly less broken and more monolithic than the Upper Tier, the Lower Tier is home to the super-classic Valkrie, while further right there are such classics and test-pieces as The Mincer, Smear Test, The Death Knell, and Commander Energy.

Getting There 

You pass the Lower Tier on the right as you head up to the Upper Tier, it's behind the Don Whillans Memorial Hut.

Chris Owen on pitch 2, past the crux, after a crazy epic! Ahhh a double rope hip belay....

Valkyrie 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Lower Tier
A total classic with a wandering line and a BIG feel to it, and tons of exposure.1) 50ft 5.7. Up the groove, then traverse left along big flakes to a ledge with a huge chimney behind it.2) 80ft 5.8. There's a big flake left of the chimney (facing the rock) up this, over the top (long sling) and down the other side (insane!!!!!) to a tricky and exposed move onto a ledge (crux). Go around the arete and up the finishing slab with a feeling of real achievement.Descend to the left and down the steps....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
