Description

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.

Location

This is 5' left of KeeMoSabe, at a slabby arete.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

Wow...only 2009? Well-placed crux bolts, bit of a grovel to pull through. Nice climb overall. May 30, 2009

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. May 10, 2010

The 4th bolt is way loose, and the first bolt is so low it's worthless. What kind of bolts are these, security bolts? They can't be tightened with a standard wrench. Aug 20, 2016

Agree with the above--these bolts are weird, including a spinner that can't be tightened (has a round nut or something). I appreciate the efforts of bolters in general, but in the modern era, if you can't use standard high-grade climbing hardware, perhaps just leave the rock alone. (If somehow I'm misanalyzing what's up with these bolts, then I apologize.) May 12, 2017
