Description

Begin near the center of Tiger Rocks in a left-slanting and overhanging corner, just left of a wide crack/chimney One Armed Giant. Undercling/layback out the overhanging corner until it turns the lip and the angle and difficulty eases.

This rarely done route is quite difficult to protect on the lead as the gear is thin and very strenuous to place. Reportedly, the FA team pre-placed the gear prior to leading it.

Protection

Lots of very thin to 1.5 inches.

I'm curious if the FA party used some pins in that pre-placed gear? It looks like you'd need blades or LAs to protect the opening 15ft or so. Apr 13, 2009

gave a friend a belay on this the other day, small nuts/micro wires protect it well but are extremely hard to place Feb 27, 2010
