Down and around the corner about 100' left of Petty Theft is this gorgeous orange dihedral system. Scamper up a triple crack system to a sapling, which provides protection for the clean blank dihedral above (5.8 R). Belay from a good ledge off hand and fist-sized cams. Pitch 2 tackles the obvious overhanging offwidth and chimney system looming above. Take a couple of big cams and a red tri-cam or narrow 1/2" cam for a small pocket at the second crux if you enjoy living. Rap 35 meters from a tree up top or walk off towards the Tunnel Ridge approach "trail" a couple of minutes to climber's left.

We climbed on face holds out left around the second OW.... seems like it would be way burly to climb it head-on
