Description

Last Gasp is an aesthetically pleasing line up an obtuse outside corner just left of Darcy's Wall.

The true ascent line starts just left of the corner in a depression which in days of yore was called the "Snake Pit." One can start more easily even farther left behind a standing block and traverse back to the corner on a ledge, however this is considered an anathema and doesn't make the ascent that much easier anyway.

Continue more or less straight up, or a little left of, the corner to the top. Unless you are a real hardman you will know at the top why it is called "Last Gasp."

Protection

Small gear for a lead but 99.9% of the ascents of this route are toppers.
