NOTE: This photo included only for visual enjoyment. This canyon is CLOSED to climbing as of late 90's. Forms much like a mini-Wildcat.

This whole post got messed up, as somehow MP took the word Pontiac as I entered it and wouldn't let me post up the climb 'Pontiac for the canyon name. (And they won't let me delete it)Sorry.


Pontiac Canyon




Still can't get this deleted. Pontiac Canyon is the location, and the photo. The Totem Pole is a climb that is in closed-to-climbers Illinois Canyon. It forms most years and is a superb 35 ft route, but alas not climbed legally since the early 90's. Feb 20, 2010
