Description 

This wall, far to the left, isn't as stacked with routes as other areas but features a few good climbs. Some of the lines here are long (over 25m). The namesake route, Purple Galaxy (12a) is a must do route.

Getting There 

This line is far to the left side of the main wall at sinks, past Addiction, Citadel, Hardware, Fallen Idol, the Moss Cave, but before the final area around the corner, the Wilds.

Featured Route For Purple Galaxy
Nice hat, eh?

Purple Galaxy 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  WY : Sinks Canyon : Purple Galaxy
Purple Galaxy busts some bouldery initial climbing up to and past the first bolt, followed by some great sequential pocket pulling. It slowly eases off as you approach the 1st set of chains. Keep going though! The upper bulge adds a nice little punch to the end of the route, with some pumpy climbing and some last minute decision making. For those who track the numbers, probably soft at 12a to the 1st set of anchors, but solid if you take the full ride.8 ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
