Ed cruises the first roof after the hard boulder ...

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


The crux of this route is in the first 15 feet, after that its just a question of figuring out how long to lounge around at the three ledges enroute to the anchors.

Great route! Hardish boulder problem down low on smaller holds. To 2 great rests. Sustained climbing above on pockets. So steep , cleaning is a bitch.

Really really fun. Intimidating for sure! 3 no hands rests and a ton of .12a jugs with a pretty hard bp at the bottom. MUST DO.
