Getting There 

Go left from the Lower Tier and struggle up a loose trail to the wall. At the base of the vertical rock, you will see some new-ish very tall sport routes (not yet in MP as of 10/21/14). From here, head left on the ledge system and locate this wall with a large pine tree at its base. Two routes left of the tree/arete and two routes right of the tree/arete.
