It can be approached a number of ways as the ledge below the block allows one to mix and match as they please. The most straightforward approach would be to climb "Porcelain Throne" or "Forgotten Passage" to get to the base.
Start in the chimney, but quickly step right to a short corner (TCU here -- sling long) then right again onto the face and a line of bolts. Do a weird transition onto the arete slab at the 3rd bolt (hint: stay low). Continue up what feels (to me) like desperately thin edging past a couple bolts to easier ground at a horizontal that takes a good # 2 or 3. Climb the last easy slab to the fixed-stopper anchor at the apex of the formation (it is easy to back up for the belay with hand/fist-sized gear).
