The Upper Tier gets far less traffic than the lower walls but has been described by some as the best sector at Gandía. It can be a bit cooler than the lower sectors if there is a breeze blowing. Guidebook page 394.

Sarcófago?
The impressive block overhang is approached direct, and then battled with. Keeping right is 7b+, left may be harder.

Celtas Cortos
Thin tufas and finger pockets lead to the roof which is skirted on its right edge. A fine sustained pitch, high in the grade.
