Below the crest of the West Hill is the Lower Tier. This has a selection of climbs, many of which have become overgrown. The best of these are listed briefly here - get them done before the vanish forever under the vegetation. The first routes are on the proud buttress at the left-hand end of the tier

Penlington's Progress
7m. The right arete of the chimney is short-lived but quite intense - the good hols are well spaced.
