Description 

The tower faces east, getting lots of morning sun. I've probably seen more parties at this crag than anywhere else in Gallatin Canyon. Lots of concentrated classics and some of the better cracks in the canyon, on high-quality gneiss.

Getting There 

Find a dirt pullout on your right (if you're heading south), about a mile before you come to the bridge over the river. Hit a trail that heads sourth out of the parking lot & follow it to the base.

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.
