Don Welsh 2nd ascent of Ton Ton circa 1987


To hard for me. Just here to report.


Same start as PROJECT. One route left of the arete which is Blade Runner. After third bolt, head right. 4 more bolts to the top.


7 bolts, plus 2 bolts at the top for chains.

One of the main holds heading into the crux broke off after rain, making this a much harder route

Some new bolts and big hangers added...don't know by whom, but looks shiny! (Note: We used to paint red or brown the bolts to make them less appealing to the shootists, but honestly, I don't know if that actually helps...) Either way, thanks!
Does it go with new beta?

Yep...holds shaped in the crux...want to think this is due to a crux hold breaking off, but definite chipping...still, grade may stick at 13a? The move is still hard (for me) but hell...
