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.
DescriptionRolling Thunder climbs a long sweep of overhanging stone, mostly on huge jugs, with a short and distinct crux moving from the 3rd to the 5th bolt.
Scramble up the pocketed ledges to begin. There is a bolt to the right which is presumably a belay bolt. Long reaches and a few throws between jugs lead to a huge diving board below the third bolt and a good shake. Thin crimps lead up to the base of the crux roof. A hard crank on a two-finger pocket and good footwork will get you to a set of jugs at the lip of the roof, where its reasonable to clip the 5th bolt. Throw a leg up, grab a small crimp, and dyno for jugs above. Once established above the roof, rest jugs abound. Shake out before cruising more jugs to the chains.
