Description

The routes at Purple Valley are unique for the area and typically aesthetic in appearance and the way they climb. A few routes top out, and most are 50 feet or longer. While Purple is popular, it is not odd to be the only party at the cliff.

Getting There

Drive to the end of FS Rd. 9b. If you haven't been to Purple Valley in a few years the road now ends quite a bit earlier than it used to. Park same as Dip Wall, cross the creek, and walk the old gravel road to a second creek crossing. After passing a road on the right look for a faint trail on the right across from some old posts. This is the original approach trail.
