Start just right of "42".
Climb crack to chimney. Pull out of chimney (quite awkward if your hand jamming is a bit rusty) onto slopey ledges with some bolts (to reduce rope drag either skip the bolt above the chimney [5.5R/X] or back clean).
Then to another bolt and yet another bolt in the first roof and clip with 20cm draw.
Pull first roof (clip with 60cm sling because there is a sharp corner that you do not want near your rope) and then a big move to slopey lip of second roof.
Traverse right clipping 2 more bolts (using a 2' sling and a draw) toward anchors.
Mantle to top. Simple.


9 bolts plus bolted anchor.
