Description Suggest change

Excellent face climbing on solid stone.  

P1 11b, 40ft - Very steep and left-trending right off the ground.  Pull around the lip to lower angle terrain and a belay at a good ledge.

P2 10d, 80ft - Less than vertical face climbing on great rock to a big ledge.  Maybe the best pitch on the route.

P3 11a, 50ft - Steep climbing up an interesting wide corner that is more face climbing than crack climbing.

P4 11d, 80ft - Exposed left-trending vertical face to steep hero jugs on the arete.  Continue up the arete to a belay on a ledge.  Wild!

P5 10d, 90ft - Climb up and right on less than vertical face that can be a bit dirty, but good rock.  Eventually join the last few bolts of Ailurophobia on the arete to the summit.

Location Suggest change

Either scramble/hike down from the ridge west of Panther Peak, around to the south side of the mountain (same as other routes), or better, hike to the true summit of Panther Peak where there is a summit registry, then scramble south to a large flat ledge to the south.  This is the east peak buttress of Panther Peak.  (Krymptonite and Superman are on the west buttress.)  Rap the route, using an off-route rap anchor, for the second rappel.

Protection Suggest change

10-12 quickdraws/slings
