Description

This amazing finger crack scares some with its sharp edges. The route goes up a wide dihedral on locking finger jams and smearing feet. The crux is trusting your feet on the small waves of basalt. Its more endurance than power. Not to be missed!!

Location

Last Chance can be found at the right side of the narrow catwalk above the river.

Protection

Nuts and cams to a #2 camalot with extra in the finger sizes.

One of the best-of-the-best in the Lower Gorge. Perfect rock, perfect protection, and continuous movement make this one a classic. The movement is characterized by PERFECT finger locks, with less than perfect feet - a satisfying journey. If you're comfortable at mid-10 crack... do this climb! Felt a touch soft compared to Morning Star and Prometheus.

Gear - Nuts, many small cams from green alien to #0.5 camalot, and one each #0.75 and #1 camalot. Oct 21, 2007
Good length and sustained. Could 5.10 fingers in a corner be more fun? Do this climb! Feb 25, 2014
