In Roman Catholic doctrine, Purgatory is a place or state of suffering inhabited by the souls of sinners who are expiating their sins before going to heaven.....
err... well...In bouldering doctrine, it's the ghetto infested cave of some wayward youths.
Broken bottles, spray tags, mattress springs, you name it it's there somewhere in the layers of soil surrounding this cave.
But even in those long dammed places there are some enticing morsels for the brave.
So wear your solid approach shoes and enjoy the overhang of Purgatory!
Routes are described from Left to Right
Approach details soon to come.
Ethic inherited from North Shore
Respecting the enviroment and keeping crags clean will maintain a healthy and important relationship between the climbing community, local councils and National Parks. Carry out what you take in and enjoy what the North Shore has to offer.
If you come across an area that is being developed or you think could be under development, please show all due respect to the developers and do not climb the projects listed on thecrag.com.
Discovered by Ranger Dave Archer in July 2013 during the Great Bouldering Boom!
This part of the Crag wasn't fully explored till many months into the development. Ofter walked past due to its rubbish and unappealing size
Regardless of the look of Purgatory the overhang was calling out to Ranger Dave and in the end it held at least two enjoyable problems.
