On top of pitch 5.


This route is actually a combination of several routes on the Totem formation that were established over the course of several years. Sika em Frente to Limiar das Lacas to As Lacas Tambem Amam to Revolta das Gravatas to Lagartao.

It is absolutely spectacular. There are splitter cracks and technical face moves up a beautiful wall.


On the north face of the Totem, which is on the south face of the Pao de Acucar. To access the route you need to take a small climbers trail that leaves from the 1.15 meter mark off of the paved trail.


Bring about 12 draws, including runners, and a single rack from a .3 to a #2 Camalot.
