Short free-standing 6-7 inch diameter pillar followed by ice filled corner. The crux is not kicking down the pillar getting into the corner. Short, fun, easy access-the downside is that it only forms up rarely (once a decade?)-it needs a snowfall followed by cold weather. As a pure rock route, it's rated in the 5.7+ to 5.9- range.
Licorice Stick is a black south-facing corner toward the south end of the Grocery Store section of the west rim of Castlewood Canyon, about 80 feet north of where the approach trail hits the cliff at the large flat boulder (by Peaches & Scream). Descend via 3rd/4th class routes south (closest) or north.
