2013
2014 Purgatory E8 Lead | worked Jan 2014
First ascent.

The day I did it was cold and I managed to top rope it first try so had no excuse other then to go for the lead. The landing isn't too bad and if you fall from low you'll be fine. The wall is so steep, and it has a nasty slab underneath, so the higher you climb the more the fall will hurt, but I luckily never had to test the landing! [1]
