Poke-O-Moonshine has several tiers above the main face. Some of these are be accessed via a Descent Gully described in "Adirondack Rock". These small sections of cliffs can go as high as 150' or so.

Getting There 

From the climbers trail, you'll go left when you hit the main face. From here, follow a trail to a large old waterfall/gully. Follow this up loose rock to the top, continue walking straight till the next wall. This is the start of the "Second Tier". There are several Tiers. Use the book "Adirondack Rock" for more details...
