Step Tier is a place that maintains its popularity simple becasue it houses some of the best kick-ass natural climbing on the Mountain. The apex of the climbing is, Moonraker. This climb really is a middle grade, photogenic,magic number that sermounts the step and then blasts straight up into the heavens. Even the rap down is a doozey. Step Tier also has easy access from the Organ Pipes Track and can be easily pin-pionted from there. It is about a four minute walk (left) from the Northern Butress track junction.
