Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Panther Mountain from Powers. You can get there from Hwy 101 on the coast also. I went south on FR 33 from Powers, turned right on Elk River on FR 5325. This is a long drive on a good gravel road. In about 10 miles from FR 33, FR 5325 changes to FR 5502. At about 15 miles from FR 33 I turned off of FR 5502 up an unnamed road on the west side of Panther Mtn. The road is kind of brushy but stay right and go up to the ridge. I kept going until I could see a mostly brushless route up to the summit. The summit is brushy and I thrashed around looking for high points. You can see the ocean from the summit on a clear day.
