Description 

Start on sharp flaky holds just to the left of the crack. Put a sling on a notch and head up a few moves until you are able to traverse right into the crack. Place a piece or two and head straight up to the start of the powerful and difficult climbing. Layback up, clip a bolt, and traverse on "jugs." Do a few moves in the crack then grab a small crimp out right and struggle your way to the top. This is the way we climbed the route, but there might be a more direct start up the crack that is better protected. The way we climbed seemed like the path of least resistance. Boom. Meow.

Location 

Right side of the Tiger Wall just before Tigerlily. Locate a burly looking crack that pinches to a seam and start just to the left.

Protection 

.3-.75 (doubles) with some slings for the start and anchor. There is one bolt at the crux. There are open cold shuts as well as 2 glue-ins further up.
