DescriptionAunt Jennifer's Tigers is a nice little route on the West face of The Box. Find this just right of Hand Crack, 5.9, and just left of Fact of a Door Frame, 5.11. This route is on a pretty, West-facing wall with brilliant green lichens has 3 of the 5 routes of the West face. Certainly ithas a bit of a hump for an approach, perhaps 45 minutes, but decent variety in the area can make it worth it. This vertical, right-angling route is identified by 2 bolts and then follows a brief R-angling crack and heads towards a 2-bolt anchor. 10d is probably right for folks 5'10" and taller. It is perhaps harder for the vertically challenged. We gave it 1.5 stars, by consensus of 2.
Either scramble up to the ledge from the left or climb a short 5.7 bit to the ledge from the right. You can clip the 1st bolt from the ledge. Step up and right, move your hands up, and then move your feet up to a good edge. Reach left to a very good left sidepull and clip. Just above, find the first crux making the long reach right to the down-pointing flake. Walk your feet up to jam the brief crack. This crack is brief but varies from #0.75 to #1 to #2 to finger size. From the top of this crack, make a long reach up & right to a good face hold. It can be challenging reaching down to the toe rail as you move right toward the anchor. Overall, this is perhaps 40 feet.
Rap the route from the 2-bolt anchor which is shared with Fact of a Door Frame. The right bolt could use a link or something better than the thin, split ring and hollow aluminum, rap ring. The left bolt also uses a thin split ring.
Protection2 QD, #0.5-2 Camalots plus something for the anchors.
Per Steve Annecone: the 1st bolt is a spinner.
