βeta: A slightly easier way has been discovered which misses out slopey crimps on crux altogether. Reach a long way past and slightly right of them with the LEFT hand from pinch-crimp for the RH just above 1st independent bolt to higher small slopey edge above the slopy crimps normally used for RIGHT hand on original method (feels improbably long way but keep rocking!...easy 6b compared to hanging more difficult slopy crimps). An easier move to good positive crimp high up and right which isn't used on original method then follows (rockover on high small edge out right). Reach back left to clip last bolt. This is still 7b+ overall but must be easier than the original method. Nice route, shame about big rest under overlap and fact its all a bit escapable higher up but moves are cool.

βeta: I clipped the bolt above the overlap on Little Extra with a long sling, then didn't bother with the low bolt on the wall of Flushings. Its OK, but it could do with its own bolt.
