Last Chance Canyon

Possibly the best limestone area in southern New Mexico. LCC is a large, very remote area northwest of Carlsbad, NM. Takes about 1 hour 45 min to drive in from Carlsbad. The climbing is found along a specific 'S' shaped curve within a much bigger canyon. Hike down is about 700 ft elevation drop from the rim, and takes 15-30 min depending on which area you go to first. Best walls are Tornado Alley, Solstice Cave, Violence Wall and Mad Cow.
