Start on the obvious crescent shaped hold near the center of the overhang with both hands, which is also the start of Superfly. Make a big move up and left up to the gaston, then either top out straight up, or top out a bit right on the Superfly jug.

This problem seems almost like an eliminate until you pull onto the starting hold and realize moving up and left is far easier than going right to the Superfly crimp. A nice variant.

Not to be confused with Iron Cross, which goes right to the Superfly crimp first, then left to the gaston, and shares the same finish.
