Climb up the or stem up to the bulge on the face with the horizontal crack on either side. Nice slab like climbing to here.  Pull the bulge on its left side and follow a short crack. Traverse out right to find the bolts again. Make sure not to be daydreaming here. Follow the bolts up to another short crack feature. With a few crystal pinches you are on the summit.
