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


The Sunporch offers a handful of routes on an undulating wall. The routes here are short, but the main attraction here is the ample afternoon sun.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, head down the main approach trail in a NNW-erly direction. After 5 minutes, the Violence Wall approach spur splits off to the right. Continue another few minutes, and another spur trail branches off to the left (west). Follow this spur towards the Sunporch. Near the canyon bottom, several short, easy downclimbs are required. Do not descend all the way to the canyon bottom. Just before the end, traverse the ledge system South to the broad shelf of the Sunporch.

Likened unto Banana Boat and Tantalizing. Starts off on some good pockets, moves through a few nice roof moves. Crux is turning the last roof section. Get your feet high and go big, as the good holds are way back....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
