Awesome jams and locks make this route a classic at the grade.
Better learn how to hand jam before attemping a lead on this climb, because if you don't you'll make the beginning into a 5.12 sufferfest.
Ignore the jug out right and take the crack head on, pull the mini-roof and gain a ledge, protect well and continue up and then left following obvious crack system to the anchors.

If you don't have much jamming experience, go run a few laps on New Yosemite, then come back to this one. The beginning is great and is a little challenging, but it eases up significantly after that.
