The most common and uncontrived way goes at v5 and is what is described above. basically ascending the arête via the path of least resistance. the original way, I think originally called a v7, had the same start, but immediately traversed right onto small holds under the roof and stayed right and underneath the arête (though you do throw to it once for a hand. it doesn't feel that contrived doing it that way, and is pretty fun.
