The handholds here are sooo cool!


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.


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


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