Two starting holds, one undercling right, and small undercling pocket for the left. Sit start makes the grade. Do it sitting on the ground for full effect. Go up and left to a crimp rail, then slightly right is a slanted jug. Next, to slopers to the right of that and up to a crystal to the top out.


Located at the middle of the Standard Overhang boulder.




have NOT done but from observing its hard, people dont like it because they cant do the first move. TRY HARDER and crank off your feet. and flex to third move.... looks like youre their from their. Jun 12, 2011

Why don't you try harder and actually get it done before spewing beta you giant dong?
Crank off your feet? Flex for a move? WTF does that even mean? Sounds like a large bowl of STFU and more time on the pink-tape problems would serve you well... Jun 12, 2011

I've never seen this boulder but I talked to my bro and he told me if you clench your anus for the first and sixth move then the crux is only about 5.8ish.

Hope this helps. Nov 13, 2012

Is this a good climb or a bad one? Is it a V8 or a V-Easy (check out the suggested ratings)? Never having been on it I would have a negative association with it based on what people are saying here which is kind of lame really - its probably a nice line. The problem is listed at V8 but the consensus is V4 or V5?? Then come the wildly inappropriate/unhelpful comments. Not that I am here to monitor anything but come on - "giant dong" - really?

@colin rickert-

This problem is well worth doing. The sit start goes at v8/9 and the stand start goes at v5.

And as far as giant dongs go- Kevin probably shouldn't be giving out any beta for problems he hasn't done. Sep 23, 2013

Did this yesterday, it felt comparably easy when its 30 degrees out. Also did the first move off a pad and not the dirt... still count?
first v8 up little. Nov 28, 2013

Was up at gate today (9/18/18) and it appears the upper hold of barfly has broken. Seemed as if someone had attempted to glue it, but was unsuccessful. Haven't been to gate in a few months, so this is the first I've seen/heard of it. See photo for reference. It doesn't effect the v8 move getting off the ground, but it seemed to make the upper section a little harder. Sep 18, 2018 · Temporary Report
