This photo shows a variant to the actual line. It is possible to break right into "Voodoo Doll", and head up to the Black Magic anchor. If climbing Bruja's Brew, step left from pitch one's bolted belay, climb more or less straight up until about 25 feet below the roof, belay on finger to hand sized gear. The next pitch steps right, takes a seam to the roof, climb straight up from the only obvious nut placement (steep, but 5.6) then scoots left to a steep pull near greenery that deposits you on a ledge. If you saw the old SMC bolt on P3, you were off route.

That is pretty much how I did it but once I got into the roof section I did cross the old SMC so I was probably too far right.

I turned the final roof half way along the diagrammed line - cool, easy, bolt at the lip (not needed but I clipped it anyhow) then moved up and left to the belay.
