An area classic, possibly the best or second best sport route I've ever done. Vertical climbing with hard cruxes and great rests. Very intriguing climbing!
Start on Cunning Stunt but cut right before the first pin and clip a bolt...head straight up from there.

If you are short, the bottom section of the route contains a rather potent crux; the two options I've taken have been:
1: Clip the 3rd bolt, then downclimb a move and step right to a left facing lieback and a lunge move from small crimps (part of the the "force-fed" variation); then head left on big holds to rejoin Fifth Force.
2: Take on the "original" tall man crux directly above the 3rd bolt. Full-on dyno if short, but a longer reach might eliminate the dyno.
Either way, an absolute classic.
