The peeling process is an algorithmic procedure that discovers a random planar map step by step. In generic cases such as the UIPT or the UIPQ, it is known [15] that any peeling process will eventually discover the whole map. In this paper we study the probability that the origin is not swallowed by the peeling process until time $n$ and show it decays at least as $n^{-2c/3}$ where \[ c \approx 0.1283123514178324542367448657387285493314266204833984375... \] is defined via an integral equation derived using the Lamperti representation of the spectrally negative $3/2$-stable Lévy process conditioned to remain positive [12] which appears as a scaling limit for the perimeter process. As an application we sharpen the upper bound of the sub-diffusivity exponent for random walk of [4].
