Description 

The Pangea Wall forms the northern aspect of The Chicken/Elephant's Head and consists of a vast expanse of cobbles, inclusions, and knobs. The wall is mostly lower angled with a few steep bulges. The wall is
~200 ft. high, with the lower portion forming an imposing 30ft. overhang possessing few climbing features. There are numerous anchors atop the wall (most w/out hangers). Due to its northerly position the Pangea Wall is shaded and secluded.

Getting There 

The Pangea Wall can be accessed via a traverse of The Canyon from the south, or by skirting the north (right) end of The Chicken (Hyperion Slab) and hiking west to the north entrance of The Canyon.

"Tex-Mex" surmounts the overhung base of the Pangea Wall via five bolts. Once out of the etriers several free moves lead to the P1 anchor. The long 2nd pitch climbs up left of the ring anchor to a bulge that leads to a full pitch of cobble and knob pulling with the occasional pocket. This is a rope stretcher, so knot the ends of your rope and make two rapells with a 60 meter rope. With thoughtful use of slings on the overhang P1 & P2 can be linked....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
