Description

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.

Getting There

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.
