βeta: 3* route if you're watching, not too sure about 1* to climb it. Ledge makes it a tad contrived.

Mr Fuller 13 Jul, 2013 Lead O/S Thought the bit to get onto the flake looked pretty easy from the ground and the top looked hard. Turns out I'd got it the wrong way round... Still VS though, and not a hard one either.
