Description [Suggest Change]

Purple Rain climbs a wildly featured roof in a forming arch. The rock quality isn't top-tier but it has some of the coolest handholds in all of Li Ming.

Some steep handjams get into the leaning and flaring off-fingers corner and some handjams just under the roof. Extend gear long and traverse out under the roof. Clipping the anchor is exciting.

Location [Suggest Change]

20 meters right of Chum Go Gugge in the obvious forming arch.

Protection [Suggest Change]

.4 to #5 with extra .75s, 1s, 2s and 3s.
