P1: Many consecutive 5.8 moves up a watergroove past four bolts and some gear....then a long run to a two bolt anchor under the roof and corner system rising up from the right.
P2: (Probably rarely or never done)...50 more feet of 5.8 climbing leads to 50 feet of third-classing to the top of the mountain.


40' right of Panthertown Knobs. 20' lef of a left facing corner rising up and left.


Not much, but you'll want one of everything to #3 Camalot including, especially, small TCUs and small offset stoppers.
