karoline meador post some fun climbing

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

Description 

This is a four star endurance fest, while there are really no hard moves, the pump builds for the wild finish.

Start up easy steep ground to even steeper ground. Rest whenever possible (when you're not pulling a roof) and stay psyched for the crux finish, for me it was a wild dyno for what I hoped was a good hold next to the anchors. While the individual move was probably no harder than V1, you're incredibly pumped at this point.

Edit 5/2015: Climbed this again, and agree with the 12a consensus. Grade has been updated.

Location 

On the right side of Tornado Alley, look for where the rock begins to curve away from the streambed. Route #13 on Monomaniac's topos. Between an unknown 10a and "Goodbye Double Wide" 13a.

Protection 

7 bolts to anchors right at the lip

Amazing steep climb with a ridiculously cool and committing final move to the anchors carrying a pump. Just jugs jugs jugs. Fun warm up/down! Really great swing for the kiddos!
