Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. MORE INFO >>>


Start up easy ground past the first few bolts. About half way up there is a pronounced crux on some small holds. Continue up fighting the pump to a large hueco, snag a rest and make one more tricky move to obtain the above slab and the anchors.

Some topos list this as 12b, but probably a little soft for that grade.


Route #2 on Monomaniac's topos. Look for the prominent arete on the left side of Tornado Alley.
