Totem Pole, Proto Pipe, and some of the new routes...

Description 

The resurgence of development on Totem Pole and the fantastic new lines established on it led to new opportunities for development. New lines are now also up around Proto Pipe and the area has much more to offer. It seems appropriate to separate it out from Glitter Box as it's as separate from there as the Road Area is and has potential to extend into the next canyon south with all the good quality rock and long lines.


Getting There 

The Totem Pole is the icon of Lower Devils Canyon and the trail there was recently much improved.

I could think of other names for this ~(:

The Totem Pole 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Totem-Proto Area
A tall, slender tower in a scenic location with good climbing and a tiny summit make for a great route. Start low on the NE side and climb up and right, slowly circling around to the West side to a belay. Belay here to avoid rope drag or, with a long rope, continue up to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
