|The first time I tried Tagger the roof was pouring water. I did this to escape. It's an OK escape, but I wouldn't recommend it.|

I've found this to be a fun climb and a useful alternative in a variety of situations, e.g., an alternate 2nd pitch for Tigger keeping one away from the crowds on Wind Ridge, a 2nd pitch for Calypso Direct, and an honorable exit in case the 2nd pitch of Tagger proves a bit much.
Climb about 2/3 the way up the dihedral on the 2nd pitch of Tagger. Set some protection. Downclimb a bit and then head up and right to the overhanging roof as you pick your way along the slab. (A fall here and it's into the dihedral.) On gaining the roof, #4 Friend is the perfect piece (long sling). One more 5.7 move going around the roof and then moderate climbing to the walkoff ledge.
