Description 

This climb is on the western side of Purgatory Rock. Scramble up to a ledge (class 3) at the base of two parallel cracks. Purified Fingers climbs the right finger crack. Delicate climbing at the start (crux) leads to easier fingers and feet.

Carefully choose your anchor location to avoid the rope feeding directly through the crack. This crack is a rope eater! It's best to have someone follow the route and then rappel off a webbing/chockstone anchor to the north.

Protection 

A single set of small cams and nuts.
