Approach the actual route by first scrambling up to the top of a block in front of the wall. Follow the fun, steep, juggy face to the top.
Directly across the Grotto from Pacman/Gameboy. Approach the route by actually scrambling up the Grotto for about 20 feet from these routes before crossing over. Superfly is the left-hand of 2 routes on this formation.
5 bolts to 2 open shuts (stick clip?)

"Superfly" was the left-hand of 2 routes on this face, but as of August 2008 there are 3 routes on this face. The left most route is "Wonderwoman" (5.10c) and "Superfly" (5.10A) is the middle of three routes on this impressive featured orange face in the Grotto. "Air Ranger" (5.10C) is on the arete on the right side of the face.

Anderson's guide recommends stick clipping the first bolt, and after climbing this, I definitely agree with him. However, if you're like me and find yourself sans a clip stick, you can at least gain some metal security by scrambling up the bolder, leaning way out, and clipping the first bolt of the route to the right before you go for the first actual bolt on Superfly. I then lowered off and unclipped that first bolt to save myself the rope drag, so it was quite a production for probably not a lot of real safety, but I'd recommend it if you need a bit of mental boost to go for those first committing moves.
