Description

The Pangea Wall forms the northern aspect of the 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, above the overhung base. The wall is ~200 ft. high, with the lower portion forming an imposing 30ft. overhang possessing few continuous climbing features. There are numerous anchors atop the wall (most w/out hangers). Due to its northerly position the Pangea Wall is shaded most of the year and secluded.

Getting There

The Pangea Wall can be accessed via a traverse of the First Corridor from the south to the north , or by skirting the north (right) end of the Elephant's Head  and hiking west toward the north entrance of the First Corridor. Pangea Wall will be on the left.
