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.

Smell my finger

Smell my Finger 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  WY : Sinks Canyon : Purple Galaxy
Better than it looks, and quite fun at that. Climbs some delicate 5.10ish lower angle rock through a few bolts before continuous 5.11- climbing punches through the upper headwall. Fun climbing on mostly good holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
