I have seen this called Ali Bhutto elsewhere Jan 10, 2018

Alicia, it works like this: Ali Bhutto was a Pakistani PM. "Ali Booto" is a pun on his name and "rock boots" (what Brits called rock shoes in the early 80s). The climb was named Ali Booto. A tone-deaf guidebook author "corrected" the name of the climb to remove the pun. Is that clearer for you? Jan 17, 2018

Thanks for the clarification Dru. I saw it on 27crags and thecrag.com, but they are probably working from the guidebook you mention. I meant no disrespect, just leaving the comment for others, like me, that weren't sure if they climbed some variation by a similar name. Apr 30, 2018
