Tiger Stripe wall is one of the most accessible, prettiest, and nicest walls around the first pullout...provided you want to climb routes somewhere between 5.10 and 5.10, but not easier or harder. A few of the routes here are longer, cleaner, and more fun than most in the area at the grade and make a good partial day of climbing. The wall sports 4 known routes plus variations and TR's, all of them being sunny for most of the day in the winter.
The wall is beautiful and photogenic alone due to the inter-folded strata and sedimentation and erosion lines.
The drawbacks of this area are the shady belay down in a trench at the base, the cat-claw bushes at the base of 'Tigger' and a constant stream of people walking by.
Take a rack of draws (10+) and a light rack. If you wish to do the route Bengal, add an Offwidth rack of wide gear as well. Beware that a longer rope is advantageous for single-rope raps or lower offs from the longer routes. If I recall correctly, a 50M will not allow lower-offs from at least two of the routes.
From the first pullout, look down and left to a lighter-colored wall with beautiful layers of stripes, each section of wall has stripes offset at different angles. Follow a secondary trail down and left aiming at this rock, which is nearest of all significant cliffs. This approach may take 3-5 min.

This route is excellent, and there is normally no one on it. This route is located on the road side of the cliff on the right side, about 25ft left of the wide crack.The hard parts are well protected, but the easier climbing is runout. Start with a cruxy headwall, and then climb the tiger striped slab to a black varnished roof. Pull the moderate roof and run it out on easy varish to the anchors. Rap with two ropes. A little bit of everything......[more] Browse More Classics in NV
