DescriptionA play on “Time After Time”, this route features an absolutely bomber lay-back flake leading to a traverse out on the prow of the Panther Den Wall.
Start: 10’ right of Cat on Wet Tin Roof via the mossy blocks and cracks below an obvious gully. Expect the first 15’ to be slimy if wet. Alternately one may start on the adjacent runout face (start of Cat on a Wet Tin Roof) and move right to the gully.
P1: 50’ 5.7 Climb mossy blocks with good gear into a gully. Continue to an optional belay from a ledge next to the beginning of twin finger cracks below an obvious right-facing flake.
P2. 130’ 5.8 Step right to attain the cracks (crux). Climb the flake with an alternating finger/hand crack to a horizontal at its top. Traverse 10’ right along the horizontal with great hands and ok feet to attain the prow. Good face climbing and a series of overlaps leads to low angle slab. Continue past a chimney on the left to belay from the trees past a left-facing corner.
LocationFind the route at the bottom of the grassy slope of the Panther Den Wall near where the herd path cuts into the woods.
Descent: Walk off (only if you don't like your skin) or bushwhack north 75’ to the top of the Panther’s Fang and rappel.
