Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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.
