Climb the left side of the North Face past 7 bolts. The 5.11c section can be avoided by moving to the arete at the third bolt, making it 5.11a.

Excellent rock quality considering that of nearby routes. Wonderful route!
[EDIT: I give it 3 stars for the 11c variation that stays right.]

I agree with Matt, the rock quality is quite good on this route, especially compared to Pirates on Horseback. The crux, however, seems contrived, since it feels unnatural to grab the arete past the third bolt. Maybe you avoid the crux by STEPPING left, not simply using the holds out left. I don't know. Perhaps I'm mincing moves. In any case, fun climbing all around.

No idea what holds are on route based on the description and comments above. Tried to find an 11c line, but all sequences seemed easier or harder than that. Probably a fun 5.10ish route if you just use the arÍte whenever you want. Fun easy edges on the second half of the route.
