Locate the low bolt just left of a detached looking block. Climb the steep wall past the bolt, a fixed stopper, and more gear to a stance and rest up for the big roof above. Continue up obvious features to the roof and a nice #1 camelot pocket. Move right and clip the bolt at the lip. Pull the roof a little right of the bolt via big reach to the lip and good holds. Cutting the feet loose -- Cliffhanger style -- gets you to bigger jugs and easier climbing. Continue up to the top and build an anchor. Either lower and toprope (and retrieve anchor on the way out) or bring second up.
