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.
DescriptionStart on a chossy, plant ridden ramp. Hike to where the ramp meets with the wall and clip the first bolt. The lower easier crux comes right after the first bolt where you pull on some suspect looking rock and onto a fine ledge. From the ledge, you can clip the second bolt. The first two bolts are shared between Separation Of Cherts And Plate and Fossil Fuel.
After the ledge, trend right up just less than vertical slab with some thin moves. Maximize the difficulty by avoiding the brushy ledge to the right. The upper section between the 5th & 6th bolts. Devious part is that the holds that look good aren't, and the great positive crimper is difficult to spot. Another Excellent route put up by Mike and Chris.
