BETA PHOTO: Up the face...

Description 

A thin, technical climb up a beautiful face. Starting left of the obvious crack, move through some lower angle rock before angling up and left and the final thin headwall before reaching the top 3 feet left of the crack.

This may not have been climbed for some time...

Location 

Up the trail from the Mir Boulder (aka Roadside Chimney Boulder), walk by Ethnic Cleansing & another set of boulders before a crag appears on the left with numerous cracks. The leftmost crack has a chockstone lodged partway up. Black Fly climbs the face just left of the crack.

Protection 

Toprope - you can scramble up a gully on the left to reach the top, or simply walk around the whole hillside
