BETA PHOTO: Upper Gallows Edge. DC: Dave And Crissa's Route 5....
The small cliff above the Main Wall
at Gallows Edge. Two bolted routes and a decent crack climb are found here.
Follow directions for Gallows Edge but don't descend all the way down to the third shelf. The Upper Tier is the second shelf. Look for a long chain anchor that is the top of Dave And Crissa's Route
. That is the left-most route on the Upper Tier.

Walking past the existing lines I was surprised to see some less vertical looking terrain. Seems like the kind of area that could be developed into a nice moderate area like lower gallows edge. I'm guessing the huge perched boulder that looks like it could fall off anytime and squish the potential crowds below has been the deterrent.

I've looked at this cliff band before and most of it is too short and too low-angled to make for any real routes. I know some local climbers have climbed all the cracks up here recently and they reported they were decent introductory gear-protected leads because they're not hard lines, generally protect well and are quite short.
