Panther Gorge is named that because it swallows parties whole. All that is ever found are the skeletons of hikers suspended in the heavy brush they couldn't penetrate or retreat from. You guys are hard core.

Chris F. can comment further, but I wouldn't be surprised if your Panther Gorge route largely followed the line of the winter route "Agartha".

Another climbing venue to explore if you cherish solitude: Silver Lake Mt. The approaches vary from easy to tough.

thanks for the positive comments guys, as more adventures unfold I'll try to post them up.
And Mike, I just looked up the Agartha route in the Blue Lines book and I can't tell based upon the description. There was a massive wet gully to our right that I would expect to ice up in the winter. but I doubt I have it in me to hike out there this winter to look....
And I've been thinking about silver lake for sometime now. Hopefully this fall we'll be doing lots of exploring out there...

Our route is a different line, of the three long shadows on the cliff we went straight up just just to the left of the right most shadow, and then scrambled up the gully just above that.
