Rapping Pangea after a long day of amazing climbin...


A classic at the grade. Gettin' kinda greasy from all the traffic, but still classic.


The obvious hueco line on the south side of the uphill spire.


6 bolts

Classic route with high quality rock. In my opinion it is one of the best 5.11+ pitches in el Potrero. Look for the no-hands rest!

The bear hug hold on Pangea is probably one of the most loved in all of EPC! There is a great knee bar available here as well. We actually had a crew gravitate around red pointing this route. Caguamas of Carta Blanca, hand rolled cigarettes, and the cheers of the onlookers were all part of the milieu. Mira taking huge whips and Drew simply styling it for the Toprope Magazine photoshoot were the highlights. Finally, I redpointed it as everybody was leaving for the last time, mastering a line I had come to love. For the stronger climbers, this route probably won't be nearly so dramatic, but it is one of my favorites and a great project for those working 11+.

Awesome, awesome pitch. Tons of fun. Do it. Two cruxes, both a lot of fun, good rests, well protected, and a fantastic finish.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a very large in-tact fossil about midway up the route! Awesome classic route. Nice reassuring glue in bolts ... go for it!
