The first pitch of this deserves 4 stars, the second and third 2, hence the overall 3 star rating. Double ropes needed to rap. Otherwise top out as for Tres Hombres and walk of exposed 3rd class to climbers left.
Pitch 1) A short traverse with thin pro leads to a left facing corner to the right of the arete. The crack widens and narrows, leading to a ledge with anchors on the far left (shared with 4 other routes). This pitch is 180+'.
Pitch 2) It's best to have scoped this from the ground; move up and right through a series of ledges to the base of a steep dihedral. Short pitch.
Pitch 3) Finish as for Tres Hombres, up a short steep section, then topping out and walking off to the climbers left.
Look for a small ledge which leads right to a small left facing corner. As with many of the climbs here, standing back helps.
Double (at least) very thin to 5". The first pitch is long and may require backcleaning for mere mortals. Micros/ballnuts in the start.

The walk off on the Belly button really sucks. Very loose gravel/scree. Whenever possible RAP! I would skip the last 2 pitches of this and call it done.
I've heard you can rap with a 70m to the top of P1 of Tangerine. I was just on Tangerine, not sure if they would reach?
