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.

Location Suggest change

Tigger starts in the middle on the front face of the Gallatin Tower. It sits between Thing in Between and The Orange Crack. Its the finger tip crack that runs along a right facing corner.

Protection Suggest change

A single, standard rack and stoppers, slings and draws.
