Totem Pole

The Totem Pole may seem to defy probability. Despite what a bored internet troll recently tried to have people believe, the "Tote" does still exist. It is approximately 65m high and only 4m wide at the base. The Free Route (12a/b), established by Simon Mentz and Steve Monks' in 1996, is something of a surprise. It actually climbs surprisingly well. Unfortunately conditions there are rarely "nice". I've made numerous trips there and out of 20+ days there only a few have sunshine, low swell, low wind and a low slime factor... Lynn Hill and Nancy Feagin scored reasonable conditions but I still think they got a little sand-bagged (as is the Oz tradition) on the first route that they tried on their trip to Australia.
