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.
A mellow start working up to the first bolt where the angle kicks up you will find some excellent pockets. The crux comes at the bulge an you near the white section. The pockets disappear replaced by vague crimps and dusty slopers. Work through the slab section. The upper section adds a few more moves to the chains.
Many perspective on sighters attempt this line and work toward the right, seeing the jugs in that juicy hueco. Avoid this mistake, as it takes pretty far off the intended line. Personally, I found it a more difficult option by comparision, and not nearly as much fun as the intended line.
