Use the same start as The Alignment. Clip the first bolt then head straight up with fun liebacking. Once you gain the small ledge, you've entered the crux and it's in your face right away! What to do? Maybe straight up on seemingly impossible holds? Or slightly right on shallow pockets and a small insecure flake? However, if you go this way it tends to suck you over to a good ledge system way out of the way, so steer clear. Either way, it's gonna be reachy and you have to put the work in.
Do the same start as The Alignment to the first bolt.

This route is good, but the anchors need replacement. Both are very loose, and and the whole bolt is pulling out of wall on right one. Use caution at the anchors.

Mostly easy, but fairly fun climbing with layback flakes to a tough crux. Even being pretty tall, it is a big throw with stretched out feet. A shorter person would likely have a tough time on this, as there aren't many decent higher foot options. I would call this a height-dependent route - probably 12a if you are tall and 5.hard if you are shorter.
When I did it not too long ago, the anchor was a total botch job. I think it is on the list to get replaced.
