It's pretty easy to set up a top rope on this route by climbing the fin on the East side of the gully from which the route begins and carefully making your way around the gulley to the top of the route. I consider this to be a fun warm up climb because you can make it progressively easier or harder by varying your line of ascent by a couple of feet in either direction. A direct start using the small heucos and shallow, flaring crack at the base of the route without stemming against the fin on the back side of the gulley is significantly above a 5.7 rating in difficulty.
