Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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