The tall left-hand side of Two Tier Buttress contains some great long sport routes. The far left-hand side is becoming somewhat overgrown but the main Open Gate Wall has some fine rock above the break. Several eliminates and filler-in routes have been added around the long corner of Thoth.

Good climbing past a glued-on hold. A long left arm helps and it is easier for the tall.
