Comments: The belay ledge at the top of the third pitch was clean when we climbed in March 2015.

Anyone know if the fourth pitch is manageable? I was looking at going up the length of the chimney but wasn't sure about rappel/downclimbing options.

Comments: That top pin is still in. The lower pin backed up with a cam is removed now.

Comments: Pulled two pins. One was getting a bit loose, the other was never driven in all the way and had been fallen on pretty hard, and it bent 90 degrees down. Both have plenty options for pro around them. The top knifeblade with 1/2" webbing is still in and in a pretty important location. Bring extra 1/2" webbing when you climb it. Chances are it will be rotted, and a carabiner won't fit in the pin due to location.

Comments: LAST CHANCE CANYON IS OPEN! I called the ranger station yesterday morning and they said that it was officially opened that morning. No fire restrictions are in place but be careful people. Again, everything North of the Queen highway is now open. Have fun.

Comments: I had a terrible time getting the rope to the anchors and took a fall with slack out, but eventually got it. Nice clean fall.

Comments: First 5.10b route. The crux was difficult for a short armed guy like me.
