I am not sure what you mean by "direct solution" but you can convert the form so L'hosiptials rule can be used.

If $\lim_{x \to \infty} f(x)=1$ and $\lim_{x \to \infty} g(x)=\infty$ then

$[f(x)]^{g(x)} = \exp [g(x) \ln(f(x))]= \exp \left[ \dfrac{\ln(f(x))}{\frac{1}{g(x)}}\right]$

This is now in the form $\dfrac{0}{0}$ so you can apply L.H.

Note the fraction could also be arrainged to get infinity over infinity
