Step in from the right, or use the harder direct start (about 20) to the first bolt.
Then climb the corner on big holds, but with a couple of reachy moves. Exit left to the "Quick & Dirty" top out. Originally listed as 20, but seems to be getting steadily downgraded.

Climbs ok but feels quite contrived as it is so close to the natural line of Quick and Dirty (you basically have to avoid using holds in that line). It also makes that trad line pretty much obsolete as the bolts of this route are so close to it (you can reach out and clip them from Quick and Dirty).

I think this is more like 19-20 depending on the directness of the start.
