Comments: The sign was posted by the Bureau of Reclamation. After conversation with the Bureau, the Access Fund will be reaching out to the climbing community and asking us not to place any bolts or install any fixed hardware on Table Mountain cliffs for the time being. Furthermore, please refrain from camping,having fires, or establishing new use trails in the area. The Bureau has expressed a number of concerns, but the signs are specifically a reaction to their concerns about possible negative affects o... more >>

Comments: On November 12th, the Access Fund is sponsoring a work party at Jailhouse to close the current trail approach to the cliff (from the bridge) and install gates, fencing, and parking via the new approach (from a gate higher on O'Byrnes Ferry Road). Please come help us; we have a lot to do in one day. Also, from that point on, the old approach will be closed, and we will drive through the gate and park at a new parking area. The gate will be locked, so you will need the code to get in!... more >>

Comments: anyone know what the driving time is from El Paso airport to Last Chance? I see it's 193 miles if you take the 62/180 east and then northeast almost all the way to Carlsbad, and then cut west on County Road 408/Dark Canyon Road, and then south on 137/Queen Highway. Is that the best way to go? seems like a long way out of the way, but perhaps it is the fastest route.
I'm planning a trip in April, and would appreciate any route/time beta. Many thanks

Comments: Hi Jon
The new easement does not require that the cliff not be publicized, and we want to make sure that climbers know about the easement conditions (for example, dogs are no longer allowed). On the other hand, the owner wants to discourage non-climber traffic on her private property, so they do not want articles or stories about the climbing in non-climbing media, such as the local Sonora papers. We all get to climb out there because of the kindness and generosity of the owners, and we really... more >>
