Tiger-Side Boulder Rock Climbing
The Tiger-Side Boulder is one of the most recognisable boulders on the LRT, and also one of the most frequented. There is a good range of boulder problems here between v-1 to v-7. The white quartzite streaks running across its side provide unique climbing moves and keepsake photo ops. Be sure to climb "Tiderside" and "Crucifixion" while youre in the area, and "Nexus" is a tough combination of both!
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.
Walk up to the overlook, get onto the trail and walk for a short moment until you come upon the cave-like "room". The left boulder that makes up "The Room" has diagonal quartzite bands and is the Tiger-Side Boulder.
