rock climb - purple wall - lcc

The Purple Wall sports a dozen 5.9 - 5.10 bolted routes on juggy, overhanging quartz monzonite. The wall is east-facing and is in the shade after 2pm. Approach is a little longer than our usual Thursday climbs. 3.8 miles up Little Cottonwood, look for a lone pine tree between the two "Maybird Avalanche Area" signs. Here, a rock cairn marks the beginning of the trail. Follow the established trail to a rock-filled gulch. A series of rock cairns lead to the remnants of two stone huts. Look left and the Purple Wall will stare right back at you. Plan on moderate hiking of about 20-25 minutes. Wear good shoes. And all participants are required to wear a helmet.
