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.

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.
