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


Climb and belay off the boulder. Good pockets work up and traverse out under the roof (the chicken way). Otherwise, you can take it straight up. Just at the point out of the roof section, look for the valuable knee bar rest, which is pretty elusive. Finishing up with good pump, tearing through the great holds up for a wild dynamic finish. The last hold is considerably better on the left side.


Start on the top of the Salad Boulder.


Bolts, Chain anchors.

Belayers note: Best practice is to belay off the boulder. Look for the safety bolt on the wall, to clip into to avoid getting jerked off the boulder during a fall, especially during the first and second bolts, due to a swing back into the boulder. On the upper section, you can unclip, as you are far less likely to deck your climber.

Lowering: watch out for the tree/bush that you come down into.
