Tiger's Eye

Description 

Start with hands on the ledge at 6 feet. Get standing on this ledge and clip the first bolt. Pass the first and second bolts via very thins moves and the use of one or two micro flakes.

After bolts 3 and 4 the climbing gets more sustained and much better. As the slab steepens continue directly up the wall above with engaging and enjoyable moves to the crux sequence to gain the good sized flake at the top of this steep section.

With the large flake at hand continue more easily up the slab above to the anchors.


Location 

Left side of the main wall


Protection 

9 bolts, double ring anchor

Maybe I was having a bad day but this felt harder than full yellow jacket (11a) route. After standing up and clipping the first bolt it felt really hard getting to the second bolt no feet and no good holds. Maybe I missed something. Higher up also felt 11 ish. Nice rock and nice location good to get away from the crowds.

General consensus is that it is harder - what grade would you give it?
