Purgatory is a classic line that sees few repeats ...



Start siting under roof, left hand side pull and right hand crimp. The crux is getting over the buldge and getting all the weight onto your feet.


The route is the first obvious overhang you see while hiking up to the lower large boulder.

This is a good line and feels a bit bold with the sloping hillside. I did the FA from the sit (low sidepulls in the corner) back in the early 90s. The name is fine with me.
