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.
Start up less than vertical, highly featured, beautiful limestone. Climb up through a mini-crack system (not crack climbing), through a small bulge (crux), past some ledges, and through more featured slab.
Right side of the overhanging roof of the primary wall, climb the corner and finish up high.
The cruxy bulge can give the strongest climbers fits, which suprises most. Watched a stout 5.12 gym rat get spit out like a sunflower seed shell, LOL. Anyhow, as with most things in climbing, it is all about your feet. Throwing up a high left foot, shifting your weight onto it, using the holds for balance not to pull up, then stand up and walk....I mean climb to the next bolt.
