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


Once rather dirty, this line has improved significantly with use.

Climb extremely juggy rock through some steep sections, to the very steep for the grade finish.


Route #14 on Monomaniac's Topos. Rightmost route on Tornado Alley. Scramble up a small hill to get to the base.

This route was generally thought to be a 10c, because it was so dirty, but Carol broomed the thing into a fine route that climbs much more securely.

Also, I highly advise the belayer to wear their brain bucket. Rockfall is pretty nasty here being so cornered.
