Description 

Above the Tiger Wall there is a slab wall with great quality rock and really interesting curve and bulge features as well as cracks. The section above the lower wall has the most interesting features but is a little shorter and the wall gets bigger as it curves around the corner to the right.

The easiest way to access the top of the wall is by Tiger Woods (5.8 trad), but you can also use Speaking of Curvature (5.10a sport) and from the top of any route you can access all top ropes.

Getting There 

From Tiger Wall walk right, along the base until reaching the end and then go uphill trending slightly left until you reach a small face (10ft tall). Go left from this and up the steep slope to the base of the Slabs. From the base you can go left to the area above Tiger Wall or right to rest of the slabs.

There is an excellent hand crack starting half way up the Tiger Slab. Directly below it is very blank. To get to the crack, start 20 feet right of the crack up a shallow corner for about 30 feet, until the obvious horizontal crack. Traverse left for 20 feet along this horizontal past a block (solid to hold, not for gear) to the base of the hand crack. Climb the hand crack through a break. When the crack peters out, exit to the right via reachy moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Today (28/07/2015) I put a fixed line in the gully between Tiger Wall and Geometry Wall. You can self belay up the easy slab to reduce the approach to the Tiger Slabs.

The fixed line is definitely up something as steep as an easy slab route route, not just a helping hand up a slope. This may be tricky if you're carrying a bigger bag or something. Useful for the way down though.

I also put a knot in the end of the rope so that people don't rappel off of it. It's solid ground at the end but still fairly steep and could be bad if someone didn't see then end of the rope coming.
