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.
