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


Climb the crack in the corner up to the Fuel chains. The route has several secure stances to place gear. Might be a little run out on the lower section, on the crumbling rock, but has plenty of secure stances to get a good placement. The only real crux I can think of is where you step across the face and move on up to the chains, but that might just come from the extra exposure if you are soloing.


Corner between Separation and Fuel. #2.5 LOL


The crack should take mid to larger placements. Beware that Limestone tends to crumble rather than get crushed and compacted. Climb safely. Chain anchors up top, watch the lip if you lower.
