This is a fun, little variation to Tigger for a wee bit o' spice.
Start in a crack/dihedral system nearly directly below the standard Tigger start. Go up to ledge. Go into dihedral just left of path of least resistance. Follow dihedral up to good stance where the 1st pitch underclings flake out right. Here follow dihedral to left over slightly awkward bulge (crux) and to the level of the belay. Traverse 10 feet right to belay. Finish with 2nd pitch of Tigger.
Standard Eldo rack works; cams at the crux.

Actually, you stay left the entire time, only merging with Tiger for 20-30 feet and that is called "Tigger Overhang" in the Levin book. 5.8 ** (on a 3* scale in that book), and I more or less agree.
