The problem starts sitting on a prominent chalky jug down and left of the big flatty that marks the start of the problem Another Million. Moves on slots and small holds allow you to trace the lip of the overhang rightwards until you reach a rest on the flatty. From here long moves on small crimps and a choice of flatties lead to Fritillary Flake and the finish. The back wall is in for feet, obviously the big detached block under the flatty of Another Million is not. I've called the problem Lead Rain after an autumnal incident at this very same crag which involved some men with guns, a cross wind and some very worried boulderers. I think its comes in around the 7b mark and is well worth the walk up the hill. If that description is too vague a video of the first ascent can be seen below.
