[Purring on Tiger Wall, 1 kb]Superbly positioned climbing up the centre of the face then out to the dramatic, hanging right-hand arete. Photo on page 63. © ROCKFAX
Start up the left hand end of the left face of the huge prow. Use a pocket to pull onto the face, then follow the obvious traverse (via a rather polished smear - crux) line to finish on big holds up the arete. Do it slowly to appreciate the exposure! 14m [P2] http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=47066
