Purgatory is the main climbing trail to access the XC parts of Summit Ridge, connecting the connector trail at the bottom to Exodus, Redemption and Holy Roller. It's also the main climbing trail used to lap Salvation, though you must use Exodus to access Salvation. The trail can also be ridden as a beginner alternative to Salvation downhill.

Access Info

For access from Route 66 take the connector to Summit Ridge, take the right to XC Trails, and then the immediate left at the three-way intersection.
