Climb the obvious crack to the left of Concrete and Clay. At the top, traverse left to the anchors. Plenty of places for protection, traverse to the bolts wasn't overly enjoyable

Right up the centre of the overhang. Climb to the ledge then up over the large 'scrotum' feature. Clip the cluster of bolts (a product of the bolters inexperience) then proceed to crush for the next 10 metres to the double ring anchors.
