The Tiger Cage & Tiger Wall areas are easily accessible and only 10 or 15 minutes from the road. The area offers routes from 5.7 to 5.12+. All routes can be easily top roped (some require trad anchors to set up). Most of the routes can be done as lead routes. In an area dominated by low angle slab climbs, Tiger Cage offers a nice selection of fairly steep cracks from 5.7 to 5.10. The area derives its name from the nearby orange and black striped Tiger Wall. Tiger wall is just a bit taller and has a nice mixture of trad climbs and "sport climbs" from 5.10 to 5.12+.
Due to its closeness to the road and easy top rope access, this makes a great destination if you only have a couple hours.
This area is easily accessed from the main road. Look for a parking area on the right side of the road a few hundred yards before you reach the "Y" and the Marmot Rock Campground. Look carefully for a faint "use trail" that heads down and right (east) from the main road. There may or may not be rock ducks to guide you. Head down to a small drainage then hike up and slightly left toward the rock. The first time you visit, you'll probably wander around a bit so give yourself a little extra time.

The crux is right off the ground with another in the middle depending on your height. Start with a sinker jam, plug in some pro and move to the face with some hard 5.11 iron cross action. Pull back into the wonderful crack and plug more pro and 2 bolts right next to each other before encountering the 2nd crux for those under 5.11. At the mini roof make a long reach or hop up the face to a horizontal. Move about 7ft left on the horizontal to a right facing hand crack and then choose between a dir...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
