Climb ~10 feet up to a piton (no pro, ~5.7). Clip the pin and continue up to anther pin and make a delicate move past the crux. Belay from the ledge about 15 above the crux (you can scramble down right from here) or continue up Thin Slabs / Thin Slabs Direct.
~20 feet right of the Thin Slabs / Thin Slabs Direct crack.
I use a ball nut to backup the pin at the crux. Small nuts may work there too.

the knifeblade piton is suspect (looks good enough for aid but not far fall). I managed to add a blue a and black alien next to it.

I got replacement cost + a six pack for whoever is skilled with piton craft and replaces that second knife blade pin.
Also, the moves to the first pin feel harder than 5.7 to me - maybe it's a reach thing, I'm 5'5" and to do a tenuous move to make the clip.

Have not led it in a few years but that second pin is unnecessary as it takes gear, both aliens and small nuts.
