Starts to the right of Totem Pole in a chimney with a large wedged block. After the block, head up and right around the arete. Follow the face to the top. As of early January 2014 when I climbed it, the face is pretty dirty and has (now fewer) vines in the cracks where protection might be had.


No anchors. Top out, sling a tree to bring up your second then rap from Totem Pole anchors.


Standard rack, add one or two BD #4 camalot (or one #4 and one #5) for the wide crack. No anchors.
