Access Issue: Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. Details


Easy climbing through the chossy lower band to a large ledge. Clip the first bolt (recommended), which is often skipped due to rope drag. Climb through good holds to find the 2nd bolt which protects the crux moves. Clipping from the large rail below, that is best gripped on the right side. Just above the second bolt is the crux a balancy, crimpy move that can be bypassed using the ramp on the left. Continue to a big ledge where the route moves right onto the opposing face for a couple more bolts to another ledge for an easy access anchor. Good movement all the way up this line.


6 Bolts, and chain anchor


This route snapped a Midland local's ankle one Sunday in 2006 when he blew the clip at the third bolt. Earned him a trip out hopping on one leg aided by two climbers at his sides.
