Stand start (V2/V3), climb the right arete until it is possible to use the left lip. Top out at the apex. Precarious and commiting. There are a couple of sit start options: with both hands on the arete adds little difficulty, starting with a sidepull undercling feature just left and moving to the arete is V4. A variation (V2) exits right into the small dihedral above the start.
