This is one of the more popular routes up the Totem, the huge pillar leaning on the south face of Pao de Acucar. It is a multi-pitch trad/sport route that has hard face, hard crack, and fun chimney climbing. The first ascent party did it without sticky rubber and at the time it was one of the hardest routes in Brasil.
The Totem is the obvious feature on the south face of the Pao de Acucar. Largartao starts up the big chimney and crack system on the south face of the Totem.
Bring a single rack from a number 1 camalot to a number 4 to protect the first pitch. The rest of the route is bolt protected, but be ready for some fun run outs.
