This route is an absolute must-do if you are in the area for a while. A 700 foot tall chimney with one or two pieces of pro per pitch--- what could be better than that! This is not a route for those not adept at chimney climbing. But for those who do like chimneys, this is a GREAT adventure, and a classic of the area.


This is the chimney that runs up the left side of the Totem formation on the south face of Pao de Acucar. Access the base of the route via a climbers trail that leaves the paved path at the 1.15 km mark.


5 or 6 long runners, anchor material.
