Route: Follow the bolts going diagonal Left-ward the whole way.
. (If some of the non-Lead climbers in the party were hoping to find interesting climbing only at difficulty 5.7 or less, just haul or aid them through the much harder crux section quickly, so they can enjoy the rest).
Variation: There is an unprotected crack (difficulty in the 5.11 range?) between the start of Staircase and the start of the bolt-protected corner crack to its left. Could be top-roped from the Staircase top anchor bolts, with a directional on one of middle bolts of the Staircase route.
Note that this whole route is less than vertical, so any place a leader falls, they might hit something -- and if they hit something they might get hurt.
Note especially that there is a significant ledge close underneath the crux sequence.
