A cold day on the classic Cutter (5.11)

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


Nice move on good holds up to the third bolt with some tough thin moves. Footwork is paramount, as it is very sequenced. I stepped up into the undercling to get through the crux. My partner and others sought a different solutions. Working the upper section, the incline eases a bit, but the hold get smaller and more balancy. Before you know it, you'll be at the chains.


Start off in the first big flat spot coming up from the Hueco cave. Between Shakka and Mad Cow.


Bolts, Chains.

This is an awesome route. One of the best 5.11s in NM, in my opinion.
