Description:

This is probably the most climbed route in Archangel Valley. An obvious line right next to the Steve Garvey Memorial Plaque. Climb the crack system in the center of the face to an anchor about 75 feet up. Excellent, steep crack climbing with outstanding protection. Rappell from the anchors, or continue up a short 5.5 pitch to a walk off.

5 out of 5 stars Great Cracks on 4th and 5th pitches!

After the third pitch, you can see one of the three great cracks that can be found on the toto buttress. They are great! One is a finger crack 5.9+, one is variation to the 5.9 and is an offwidth that is burly 5.10b, and the third is the 5th pitch to Toto and goes 5.10a. Bring some big cams!

This route was a lot of fun however in the rain the little grass walk ups can be a little scary on lead...
