Did it without rope drag at all. Back clean 1st and 2nd bolt on P1, use shoulder length on 3rd and 4th. Skip the anchor and back clean the 1st bolt on P2 and 5th (one under the roof). Maybe good idea not to unclip the 2nd bolt on P1 for better protection of follower.  Top crux on p2  The last pitch. Awesome exposure!  Near the top of p3  Looking down the crimpfest (p2)
