Zantom Phone, Chapel Head Scar

Any beta for getting between the 3rd and 4th bolts on this?
It's one of the few routes not seeping so had a play on it yesterday. I'm fine to up the two decent flat holds (bigger one on the L) by the 3rd bolt. From here I'm not sure how you get to up the juggy RH sidepull pocket without traversing into Phantom Zone next door.
There's a mono I can get with either hand, then a couple of really poor R facing pinchy layaways maybe?..

I belayed Aaron on it way back when and that mono is essential. Can't remember which hand though  :shrug:

i dont think I used the mono. Remember crimping hard tho. Maybe a rockever out left to an intermediate? Then take a sidepull? Havent been for years so its a bit hazy!

From the good flat hold on the left; LH up to small sharp gaston, press out right for a rubbishy pinchy sidepull, LF on obvious polished edge, bump LH to small sidepull flake (the hard bit!), sort feet and get LF up onto the big hold then throw to the jug
