Description 

Warm up on Pump It Until Purple. It will give you a taste of what to expect on other climbs on the Purple Wall. It is just a little steep, and a little bit pumpy too. My arms didn't turn purple when they got pumped, maybe I was doing something wrong...


Location 

A small tree grows underneath a broken corner system that splits the wall. Pump It Until Purple is the first climb to the left of the tree. Rappel off of the 2 chain anchor.


Protection 

6 gray bolts to a 2 chain anchor.

While hiking up to ski, I stopped to check out some of the routes, using the snow as a boulder pad.  The fifth bolt on this climb is 18" above my left hand.  The second bolt is at the level of my skiis, the first bolt is buried in the snow somewhere.  I'll have to come back and climb this when the snow melts.

The routes on this wall climb much better than they look. Fun jug-hauling on a slightly overhanging wall.

Go right over a smooth bulge for a slightly harder variation.

Fun warm up. If you climb 10d to 11A just start here and work left. Its a good sequence of climbs.
