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.
The hardest of the (4) .11s, this one adds a bit of power at the crux and is much more continuous. Hard move off the ground gains a good stance at some big holes. A powerful undercling follows allowing a long reach to a good pocket but then some bad holds. The climbing stays in the upper 5.11 range until on the slab. Continue up fun orange rock to the anchor. Great technical route. Very soft for 5.12 but also quite hard in the 5.11 grade. Classic 5.11d/.12a!
