Layback up the arete just right of Senior Citizens. The crux for many is just below a small overlap. Even though the bolts are all on the right side of the arete on the bottom 2/3 of the route, one may find it easier to sometimes climb on the left side.
Even when many other routes are wet, this one may be dry.
Start just right of Senior Citizens in Space.

Climbing to the left as you approach the overlap works but be aware that falling before you make that clip will send you hurtling into the wall of the dihedral behind you. At 5'1", I found this to be a difficult clip to reach. For those wanting to mitigate this risk, climbing Senior Citizens first and pre-hanging an extended draw at that spot allows you to make the clip from a safer position. I am by no means solid at the grade so your mileage may vary.
I thought this climb was excellent and interesting throughout.
