Ted climbing up Tiers for Walter


A new route not in the Clifton Guidebook.

Just to the right of Natural Mystic, closest to the tree adjacent to the cliff is where you'll find Tiers for Walter, easily identified by its two close initial bolts.

The moves by the first bolts is the first crux, with a second one coming 2/3rds of the way up.

Classic Clifton crystal pinching at it's finest. Can only be climbed with a 60 meter rope and longer.


The trail with the orange tape and cairns dumps you right at the Left Face in front of natural mystic. Of the cluster of climbs right there this is the left most one, closest to the big tree next to the cliff.


13 large 1/2" bolts protect the route, but you'll also want some trad pro to slot in the large horizontal cracks and occasional vertical seam along the way.

This climb is great! It is getting a bit mossy and overgrown, so get out there and climb it! Be aware, you have to do 2 raps, or walk off to get back down. Note: I did not have any trad gear with me, and it was ok... It is a bit run out, but the climbing is easy.
