BETA PHOTO: Routes on the right side of Scout Rock:
Tonto is a new sport route just left of KeeMoSabe. Although short, it has varied and interesting climbing all the way up.
Start at a blunt arete about 5' left of KeeMoSabe. Climb the slabby arete and step left to a water groove. Layback past an overhanging slot (crux), continue up a groove and step right to the anchor. Lower from hooks.
Wow...only 2009? Well placed crux bolts, bit of a grovel to pull through. Nice climb overall.

This is a very neat, short climb. I tried it on lead first but couldn't solve the crux. Then as I watched my partner Debbie enter the crux, it became obvious that laying back on the little mini arete in the slot was the key. I suggested this to Deb and she sent although probably more due to her ability and persistence than my advice. I then did on toprope. The crux is a cool little offwidth. Left side in. A little heel-toe action comes in handy too.

Weird climb and weird bolting. Why is there a lead bolt 2 feet below the anchor?
