Climb the obvious flared dihedral right of Claim Jumper. Combines good jams with chimney/off-width technique.
Gear to 4", can use the anchors on One Armed Bandit.

Fun little trad diversion with a very different character from the other climbs on this wall. A little stiff for a Holcomb 5.7 and probably not a good choice for a new 5.7 trad leader. Protection is a bit tricky, but it's all there - just bring some big cams and/or hexes. Useful to have something really big (bigger than #5 camalot) for the bottom section, otherwise the first opportunity for decent pro is about 15' up in a small crack on the right wall of the chimney.

I was a little nervous about the blocks in the last steep section before the anchors. There is a lot of "loose" material, some of which is quite large. It's a matter of time before pieces of it come down and I hope nobody is there when it does.
With that being said, three of us climbed through them today. This is a fun varied route that climbs like a chiminey in the flared dihedral.
