Start 6' right of Chuckwalla (the obvious wide crack with the flake), or about 6' left of Belly Up and Grandstanding in a thin crack, which ends 15' up. Next you'll need to run it out on a featured slab (easier than it initially looks; but heady for a marginal 5.9 leader) to gain the obvious vertical hand crack near the top. This hand crack at the top is steep and fun and well-protected by large cams.
Leaders looking for a well-protected 5.8/5.9 might do well to begin as for Belly Up, then step left and finish with the hand crack finish of Belly Flop, which is better protected than the seam that is the regular finish for Belly Up.
I never did find a "belly flop" move.
