My recommendation to do this as a 3 pitch is as follows:

Pitch 1: Svetlana (10a) or Warcraft (10b)
Pitch 2: Drive-in (10b)
Pitch 3: Moderator (11a)

I personally like Warcraft better than Svetlana for a 1st pitch, but I am may be bias since Warcraft is my route :P

Rad route, do Aloha Patrol then this if it's cold, other way around if it's hot.

On the approach pitch (Warlord) keep going up past the lower-offs to comfortable anchors on the flat top (or suffer an unnecessary hanging belay).

Redoing it? I'd walk off. The two bolt anchor at the top of the 3rd pitch is in increasingly suspect rock (both of us pulled off holds on this pitch), bolts are close together, and the rock sounds sketchy with knocks. Rappelling a full overhanging pitch off these was a little more sketch than I'm ok with.
