Route ascends a 200' long technical slab to the obvious crack in the center of the cliff and follows it until its end. This deceptively stout climb is a must-do in Panther Gorge though youll want to make sure it hasnt rained for several days beforehand. Slab climbing, vertical handcracks, offwidths and a chimney all with a few awkward moves boost your heart rate!
Recommended to use double ropes for rappel to gully exit otherwise secure rappel options are poor.
P1 5.5 - 180
Climb slab to grassy ledge below central crack (largest on
P2 Crux 5.9 - 75
Climb crack to offwidth then runout slab and belay from grassy ledge.
P3 5.7 - 150
Continue following crack to offwidth chimney. Follow left facing corner to vertical crack. Climb and follow slab to top.
