From the block, climb the 10 foot, South-facing wall of the dihedral and uncling your way onto the East Face (5.8 S).
An improbable hollow flake on the face immediately after the crux offers the last protection opportunity for the next 100 feet. Climb the narrow steep East Face up thin/licheny holds until you reach the hand crack where Swing Time and the East Face route merge (5.6 S, although I would give it a VS rating). From here, an easy pitch gets you to the summit.
We opted to toprope the East Face's 5.8 S pitch from the handcrack while climbing Swing Time.
