This tigger is nothing like the one you grew up with....
This Tigger is mean, strenuous and demanding. Technical and tricky, this route makes for a great, all out adventure. Good climbing and good gear are just enough to keep you from breaking. While most people only climb the first pitch, the second makes for a nice option when dodging or passing crowds - go for it!
P1: Technical and awkward this route starts off hard with a few difficult moves right off the ground. Fire through this spot and catch a rest below the roof. Move out and right into space gaining the thin crack at its worst. Layback, finger-lock, or mash your way up 10 more feet of brutality (crux) to a slightly easier and slowly widening crack. Catch a good rest in a corner and move up and left over the arete to a two bolt anchor with rings/chains. 40' (5.10a/b)
P2: Continue up and right off the belay aiming for a right facing wall with a short hand crack. Sticking to the corner, continue climbing up to an awkward ledge and traverse left to a low-grade, but passable slab, stay inside a shallow corner and top out on a large platform. Build a belay. 100' (5.9+)
P2-a: Continue up and left through a dirty break in the roof, follow this fracture up to the awkward ledge and fire the slab to the platform. 100' (5.9+)
P3: Finish on either of the last pitches of The Standard Route
Descent: Locate an anchor on the backside of the tower, rappel, rappel, then walk off.
