Access Issue: Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. Details
The Lincoln National Forest Service continues its ban on bolting new routes (or, by permission only). However, climbing is currently allowed in all areas of Last Chance Canyon.
Description [Suggest Change]
The Sunporch offers a handful of routes on an undulating wall. The routes here are short, but the main attraction here is the ample afternoon sun.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
From the parking lot, head down the main approach trail in a NNW-erly direction. After 5 minutes, the Violence Wall approach spur splits off to the right. Continue another few minutes, and another spur trail branches off to the left (west). Follow this spur towards the Sunporch. Near the canyon bottom, several short, easy downclimbs are required. Do not descend all the way to the canyon bottom. Just before the end, traverse the ledge system South to the broad shelf of the Sunporch.
