A Must do if you are at the Crag of Tiers! Climb the face into the scoop passing 2 bolts. When you figure out the moves its mind blowing! After that, face climb using gear until you reach the last bolt. Climbing past the last bolt is a little tricky, shortly after is some victory climbing to the anchors. Some really interesting holds on this climb, even a bomber finger pocket!


Second route with bolts to the left of the Lowe Route


3 bolts + single from .2 to 1 BD. Bolted Anchors

Brilliant. A small nut protects the opening moves. Don't high five yourself after sending the shield proper, the climbing stays in your face until a ways above the 3rd bolt.
