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, 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 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.

Some may not understand the concept of top roping from the top. The belayer anchors at the top and the climber rappels down and then is belayed up. The overhanging bit at the base of the wall is quite a barrier. Above that climbing is moderate and abunant. Rather than establish routes all over this lovely face I set a central top anchor (1998) which could be used to access a wide variety of lines on this wall. Some years ago some azzhole stole all the hangers so bring your own 3/8" hangers and nuts to enjoy this area.

It would be a shame to see this beautiful natural feature grid-bolted. Enjoy wild adventure and create your own route by top-roping Pangea wall from the top. Everyone can have their crack at a first ascent with the adventure and creativity that goes with it. Enjoy this lovely wall with endless possiblitlies in a wide range of grades under 5.10.

Suggestion is to the formation via any route and bring two ropes. Set one as a rappel line and use the other as a belay line.

Enjoy! Dec 22, 2018
