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


Great thin face climbing route. A fun start on good holds leads to some cranks from thin holds where the foot holds just aren't where you want them. Following this creative posistioning allows a strenuous rest in the dihedral to a few more tricky moves to surmount the final steep section.


15 on the topo. Look for the dihedral.


Very well protected with 8 Bolts to Chains. The middle of the closely spaced bolts could easily be skipped.

Way harder than it looks from the ground. As I went through the crux section my belayer was busy downgrading this to 10+ and wondering why I wasn't responding. In actuality it felt a bit stiff for the grade compared with the other 12a's in the canyon.

Delightful. Some of the most unique climbing on this wall. Good rock and highly technical movement
