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.
DescriptionRight off the deck, this one is strong out of the gate and slacks off as it rises. First few moves involve thin feet with small holds. The crux comes just after clipping the second bolt, with tiny crimps and technical movement taking you to a jug you'll be happy you found. After this, things ease up a little as you stem through some respectable 5.10 moves through a dihedral. Finish up by knocking out a couple of easy ledges with plenty of rests. Nice long route that does not see much traffic.
Protection10 Bolts and Chains.
If you are not solid at the grade, then consider stick clipping the first bolt.
Beware of the stinging nettle that plagues the landing of this route, burns like hell.
Beware of giant centepede that enjoy this wall. I watched a 16" monster crawl behind my rope before I made my attempt.
