500 feet to the right of H.O.D is a line of bolts leading up to a left facing flake. Set up a hanging belay near the top of it. Angle up and right on a beautiful face(crux) to another left facing corner/crack. Belay in a little niche halfway up where it closes down. Continue up for a couple of 5.10ish pitches switching cracks where they run out. Belay next to a big roof and make a couple of scary 5.10 moves to the bolt and race up the dihedral to the summit and the end of one of the best routes in the Platte.
