Description

Excellent slab, face, and watergroove climbing over crisp granite with great friction in a beautiful mountain valley.

Paralleling (10), Ground Control (8+), Panthertown Knobs (9+) provide for some of the technically easiest climbing, but still should be treated with the utmost respect. Almost every route here gets an R rating. A fall on any route here could be nasty.

Getting There

From the parking lot, follow the old roadbed TR474, past Salt Rock overlook on your left and down the hill. After a few minutes take a right on Deep Gap TR449 until you encounter a pine grove on the left. Walk diagonally through to pine grove to a faint trail leading to the SE, ultimately intersecting TR486 to Granny Burrel Falls at the creek crossing. Cross Panthertown Creek continuing on Great Wall TR489, passing the Boy Scout shelter on the right, meandering into the woods. After a few minutes, the wall will be visible to the left. Find the trail to the base. This takes you to the face in the neighborhood of Camp Big Green, 5.11a, left of center.
