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.
Another great route on Mad Cow Wall, this one is quite similiar to "Ebola", with an easier starting section, and a much easier crux up high. After stickclipping the first (or second bolt) depending on your risk tolerance. Get off the ground with some difficulty, pull a few thin moves and throw to one of the coolest holds at Last Chance, a huge pocket, in some type of fossil / petrified wood. From here a few long moves on decent crimps lead up to a good rest. Rest up as a few technical and sequential moves remain, before the 5.10 jughaul to the top.
Far left side of Mad Cow. Second route from the left, before Hueco Cave. To the left is "Ebola", to the right is "Mad Cow".
