This route is located right (southwest) of Gracie's Dihedral along the Crack Wall. Approach the top of the climb by walking along the ridgeline from the parking area. One can reach the base of the climb via an access gully north of the S-Crack area to the north. This route is found in Front Range Topropes by Fred Knapp.


Longs slings can be used to toprope this route.

The difficulty is right off the ground (watch the fall line, there's a large boulder under the starting holds). Finishing onto the licheny slab might be a secondary crux, if only for the commitment above the small ledge.
