Description:

F.A. Dwight Kroll, August 1995 Another worthy climb which isn't listed in the guidebook. This is the first (leftmost) climb on Tiger Cage if you come down from Courtright Road.

Ascend a beautiful widening, right-facing lieback crack 25 feet to a small stance. Large cams will go under an obvious flake. Traverse and climb right on steep friction, past three bolts. The crux, well-protected friction, is just below the anchor. Enjoyable and varied climbing!

4 out of 5 stars Mixed Trad/bolts

Really cool set of flakes/cracks at the bottom and a few finger pockets towards the right.
slight rain at the time - a little slick at the bottom near the cracks but still grippy up top and near the crux.

Kim and I toproped it. First time up, I went WAAAY right, up an enjoyable deep crack (the one with a small pine tree sprouting out of it).
