Description 

The Lower Tier offers sport routes, trad routes and top ropes all exist on this lower section of climbing. Because of the fragile nature of this rock, bring long slings for topropes (20'+), don't climb this area for at least 3 days after a rain storm, and be careful of loose bolts and anchors, as many of them cannot withstand too many serious falls. Amazing Face (5.9) and Ozone (5.10c) are area classics.


Getting There 

Refer to general overview for Boy Scout Rocks.

Amazing face is to the right of the crack (that's my little brother on the left!)

Amazing Face 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CA : SF Bay Area : ... : Lower Tier
A decent face route with some interesting moves. Apparently the most-wanted route in the area but I can't imagine why... The actual climbing on "Amazing Face" is pretty average, but you get a great view between your heels in the upper part of the climb. P.S.- The belayer gets two points for dropping a falling climber into either of the man-eating holes at the bottom of the route....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
