Description 

Path of least resistance up the left side of Tiger Wall through some really interesting features.

Start by climbing the ramp past 3 bolts to its top, then traverse left along the sloping ledge (added a bolt here 9/07/2016) to clip a bolt on the overhanging arete. Climb straight up the arete, avoid a roof by climbing to the left of it and then up the face above. Top out straight above the last bolt.

Be aware of potential for rope drag on the way down and small loose rocks. Best to have someone follow this on toprope to clean it due to swing potential.

Location 

Right side of Tiger Wall. Gets you to the top of tiger wall for easy access to the Tiger Slabs above.

Protection 

8 Bolts + anchor with Rappel Hardware

Added another bolt for the ledge traverse. Probably best to unclip this once the bolt on the arete is clipped to reduce rope drag.

This was described as "5.8 climbing with 5.10 routefinding"
