This is one of the true gems of Panther Gorge-clean stone, diverse climbing, a seam under a multi-tiered roof system and splitter handcrack. P1 5.7 200’ Climb the dark black slab up face holds to a thin crack. Follow for about 40’ to a horizontal crack. Follow a right rising ledge to the huge corner and belay at the end of the rope under small block roofs. P2 5.9- 110’ Continue up to obvious left facing corner under dominant roof system. Step left 20’ to a vertical crack and climb below a cantilevered block—the Dong of Death. Do not touch the dong. Break right back to the corner then follow the multi-tiered roof/corner system to the lip. (Critical protection above lip). Traverse right about 7 feet to obvious vertical handcrack and climb to top. Follow crack right and belay. P3 5.7 170’ Up a short left facing corner located to the right. Follow slab to large left facing corner, follow to top. Drift left and belay at tree left of grungy opposing corners. P4 5.7 80’ Climb cracks for 30’ the break right for 50’ through 5th class krummholz to belay at top of Wreck of the Lichen Fitzgerald.

Descent Options:

Same as Wreck of the Lichen Fitzgerald.
