Traverse the slopey lip of the Fly Boulder from right to left.
Topping out on the Barfly crystal makes the route about v4,
Continuing to the Superfly jug through bad slopers will bump the grade up to v5.

Super good movement as you lie back and heel hook your way to the top.


On the south face of the Fly Boulder.
Start on the far right side of the boulder next to the tree, traverse the lip going left.


a couple crash pads and spotters

feel like the first move is easier done with a campus to the next slopers

I believe if you continue past the center finish, and end on the standard overhang it bumps the grade up to a v5. no move is particularly hard on this problem you just have to hang on.
