Pamela Shanti Pack


After developing compartment syndrome in both arms and fearing an end to her climbing career, Pamela quickly changed track and in short time has become one of America’s premier offwidth experts. Pack has established numerous first ascents of hard inverted offwidth roofs including Gabriel 5.13c in Zion, Utah, The Event Horizon 5.13 in Indian Creek, UT and The Wing 5.12c and Spatial Relations 5.13a in Vedauwoo, WY. Pack has first female ascents of more than 30 offwidths in the 5.11 to 5.13 range including the legendary squeeze chimney Lucille 5.13a (onsight) which has only had 7-8 known ascents in over 20 years. In 2009 Climbing Magazine awarded Pack the Golden Piton Award for establishing the offwidth roof Gabriel the hardest offwidth established by a North American.
