About Lower Tier:

The lowermost portion of the formation, Lower Tier offers the longest routes as well as the longest and most difficult approach. To access the area, hop over the summit railing and head south towards the Middle Tier area. From here, follow the west side til you get to a nice big lunch ledge. This is the start of Frito Bandito and a good picnic area providing shade in the alcove.
