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.
DescriptionSteep! is probably the best way to describe this route.
Route starts up the vague arete to the technical crux of the route at the first bolt, a long reach right from a sidepull to a crimp. Continue up utilizing some good holds in the crack to the second bolt. From here trend right on mostly jugs while negotiating some smaller crimps. A decent rest can be obtained below the roof. Head out the roof on great jugs to a heartbreaking redpoint crux just below the chains.
3 Stars for the climbing, 1 star for the rock quality. While nothing came off, it felt like a few holds were about to. In particular the rest crimp below the roof felt a little shaky.
