Description

So much fun...
This one goes easy (v4) when its cool and less humid, and goes hard (v5) if its over 50 degrees out. Just bring your crimpin' fingers and you'll do well.

Sit-Start low, under the incline with feet far underneath on any good edge (not many to choose from) and with hands on two small edges that are the quartzite "tiger" stripes from which the problem is named.

Power up through the start up and out to a sloper above. From the sloper follow the shallow edges up toward overhanging block overhead.

Note: For the climb "Crucifixion"(V6) the lower block/boulder has historically been treated as "off" and has been graded as such. Sorry for any misunderstanding! If the low block is used for feet the lower crux sections are no longer as challenging.

Location

When looking at the "room" (see Beastmaster) the left boulder has the "Tiger Side" problem. look for the Quartzite stripes across from "Beastmaster" and where the boulder is slightly inclined. the problem is directly behind the large rock that could be landed on. "Tiger Side" starts under the overhang with feet to the back of the boulder, underneath. Hands on two small, quartzite "stripe", crimp edges.

Protection

pads... Be sure to bring enough to cover the big block.
