Up and onto a big hold at the bottom of the face (first bolt). Tenuously now past 2 more bolts, with nice moves on great rock up to the crux, trend slightly right to the horizontal break (cam if you want), up onto the break and finish the slab above (bolt), then step left and finish up Harlan Pepper to its anchors.
At bolt number three it's possible to use good holds on the left to bypass the crux, this reduces the grade to 5.8.
Face up the second buttress from the left.
Four bolts and an optional 1" cam.

This is another one that would get an extra star if it wasn't so easy to grab good holds on the left.
