Pangaea Wall Rock Climbing

Pangaea Wall is one of the smaller, less obvious features in Mendoza canyon. Hidden behind Elephant Dome, Pangaea Wall faces south toward the drainage separating it from Table Dome. The drainage has created growth that makes the approach more difficult but also trees large enough to provide shade at the base of the routes.
The most well known route on the rock is Song of Pangea (5.9, A2) which climbs through the large roof in 5 pitches. Unemployment Blues (5.8) climbs the obvious left facing corner and offers a less committing choice with bolted rap stations (no chains) at the top of both pitches.
To descend from the top of the formation traverse right and scramble down a 4th class gully to a large ledge. This is the top Unemployment Blues, two 50m rappels will reach the ground from here.
From the reservoir followed a marked trail west toward the canyon between Table Dome and Elephant Dome. The trail follows a creek bed and shortly before reaching Table Dome turns left towards Table or stays above the drainage on the right side. Stay right and cross slabs west and up to the base of Roof Wall. Follow a trail along the base Roof Wall. Turn a corner and continue up a steep section to the next wall (Pangaea Wall). It can be recognized by a large left facing corner and huge roof above.
