Description 

This route is immediately left (northeast) of S-Crack and right (southwest) of Cracky Face. Access the top of the route by walking along the ridgeline from the parking area. There is a gully just north of this area that can be used to downclimb to the base of the climb. The name of the route is found in Front Range Topropes by Fred Knapp.

Protection 

Nuts were used to set up a top rope.
