BETA PHOTO: The right half of Tonto Buttress has a steep dihed...


Look for a second pine tree near the highest part of the base of the Buttress. Start below the second pine growing low on the wall. Climb an easy but sparsely protected broken ramp up and left to a piton and the base of the upper dihedral. Continue up and right on blocky terrain to the vertical crack above. After the crux start of the upper dihedral, the cracks ease up considerably. As you exit walk left/north to anchor behind shrub. Descend with two rappel on Wapooita.


At right side of wall, start below upper dihedrals near Pine tree on the wall. Easy climbing up and left (sparse protection) gets you to top of ramp and piton. Descent via Wapooita anchor (left of top out). Two rappels with 60m rope.


Double rack (.3-3 cams), nuts, slings and quick draws (12). One piton.
