Follow the arete above the last anchor for toto, goes up and around then left over a LITTLE roof and onto a big belay ledge for the next climb. Two rope rap back to the toto anchor.

4 out of 5 stars What?!?! You need a rope?

No really, you do need a rope, but we forgot ours so we made a round trip back to anchorage to get it. Enjoyable route with beautiful scenery. Climb it in the AM if you want sun.

2 out of 5 stars This is the third pitch of the Toto buttress

This is the third of six pitches of the Toto buttress. This is the least enjoyable pitch with some grassy ledges. This is probably 5.7, with bolts leading you onto the arete around the corner/roof to the two bolt chain anchor. From the top, you can see the next pitch which is a short 5.9+ finger crack to another two bolt anchor. The whole six pitches go: 5.7, 5.8, 5.7, 5.9, 5.10a, 5.10a.
