The Santa Fe Wall.
|Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. MORE INFO >>>|
This steep cliff is named for its lone completed route "Santa Fe". There is evidence of three other projects that appear abandoned. The cliff's namesake ascends a 30 degree overhang on huge jugs. The cliff is fairly long for this part of the canyon, and faces due south, though the wall is shaded in the morning by the canyon wall. In summer the steepness of the cliff provides nearly all-day shade.
This cliff is 50 yards up-canyon from the Sunporch, on the East/south side of the canyon. Routes begin right out of the streambed.

Steep! is probably the best way to describe this route.Route starts up the vague arete to the technical crux of the route at the first bolt, a long reach right from a sidepull to a crimp. Continue up utilizing some good holds in the crack to the second bolt. From here trend right on mostly jugs while negotiating some smaller crimps. A decent rest can be obtained below the roof. Head out the roof on great jugs to a heartbreaking redpoint crux just below the chains.3 Stars for the climbing, 1 star...[more] Browse More Classics in NM

Santa Fe Cave is 100% dry and open. Wash-out puts the first bolt up around 25' off the deck, sort of, but it is easy climbing and clip. Stick Clip should be easy to employ.
