DescriptionGreat spot out of the wind, sunny early and shady late. Good warmup lines here, and home to Mike Gillets "Fling". A nice clear landing with some great rocks to sit down and lace up. The first 20' is a chossy low angle wreck. Some parties spread out up on the big ledge, which gets good sun in the morning and is protected very well from the wind.
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.
Getting ThereHike the trail, take the sharp left (toward Tornado Wall), and just past the big steep slab section of the trail, look for a faint trail to the right (put in for dog owners). Follow the mellow switchback to the steambed trail in the meadow. Hike downstream till the trail crosses, where you go straight across to the opposing wall. Or from Tornado, follow the streambed down about 200 yeards.
