Same start as The Dude.
Work right along the shelf under the roof using heel hooks. Cross through to a righthand crimp and with yet another blessed heel, reach for the{should be better} sidepull. Another big reach and your at the jugs at mid height. Work up on incuts/crimps to a quarts crystal top out.

Another Contender for Best Ruthven Problem.
