This is an interesting granite which looks very much like it has stripes like a tiger. This west-facing rock features several steep slabby sport climbs in the 5.11-5.12 range. To the best of my knowledge, these climbs cannot be accessed from the top of the cliff.

Getting There 

From the top of the hill take the second left and continue straight. The wall is located about a mile down on the left right near the road. It is unmistakeable with all the stripes.

To the left of these routes is an offwidth that is about 50 60 feet high. It starts with a small roof and ends at a boulder on the top. The boulder may still be attached. My guess is its hard 11 easy 12. The boulder can be slung to toprope this climb.gear would be more #3 and #4 camalots than anything. Maybe smaller sizes up high and down low. So check it out for yourself.

I'm pretty sure the offwidth is here, but it may be to the left of one the other areas.

There are three bolted climbs on the Tiger Wall. The easyier one is farthest left. As you go right the other two climbs get harder. The climb on the left was put up by Phil Street.

I have made it back to Gunny. My previous comment is really bad beta. This crack is to the left of the tiger stripe wall, but it is more like 5.10. It is also a mix of hand and fingers, not offwidth. A standard rack will do. This is from a recent trip and is accurate.
