Nice addition Robert! I've only been to MRP twice but did this one both times. Don't remember it being much of a mantle though, you have a good foot hold on the lip of the roof. Here is how i did it. Start on the two holds and press into the underside of the roof, make a long reach around and over the lip to a good hold up high. establish on the edge of the roof via good foot hold on the lip and stand up. Great problem anyway you do it.

Definitely Joey--that foothold is key! The one person I've seen throw a heel on this problem ended up breaking his ulna and radius by way of his shoulder pushing through thanks to the awkward fall on the rocks below.

See you out there,
