Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. MORE INFO >>>


The Beer Garden offers a handful of brilliant routes on excellent limestone. Several blue and gray streaks paint the pocketed wall. Routes here are long and vertical to slightly overhanging, and usually have a slab finish. This cliff faces west. The routes receive little sun in the winter due to the crags low position in the canyon.

Getting There 

Continue down canyon past the Violence Wall, Mad Cow Wall, and Hueco Cave. The Beer Garden is located on the East wall of the canyon, at a point immediately after the canyon turns abruptly to the North. Routes begin right out of the stream bed.

Crank on great pockets up through two bolts of sustained climbing to meet the crux at the third. Above jugs abound up to the ledge. Take a load off. Turn the roof using a high heel for the upper crux to clip the chains. Simply Awesome!...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

I haven't done any of these routes, but they all appear to be of excellent quality, and likely in the 5.11-5.12 range.

Black & Tan was a great 12a and consistent with others of the same grade in the canyon that we did. The grey streak just to the right is awesome 12a to a v7 to sweet 5.10... I thought 13a-c (seemed like a height dependent crux?) great routes! So much more to develop here! MEGA. -Noah
