Three routes, sharing the same four bolts, start off the fun at The Watchtower. Blood Drive resides as the second tallest and most direct route on it's north/east face. Begin climbing the slab using shallow pockets and "cake battered" feet. Climb straight up the wall passing a mid-station anchor and head for a drain shaped water runnel. Enter the runnel and put your stemming shoes on. Make delicate work of this long, tedious crux and be rewarded with a set of chains.
- climb this route to the first anchor for a fun 5.8
- A mid-station anchor allows the use of one 50m rope.
Blood Drive is the center route up the tallest wall at the The Soul Asylum.
Fourteen bolts, an intermediate anchor, and a top anchor with chains. A 70m almost makes it to the bottom, but down-climbing is required. The mid-station anchor allows use of a 50m. Climb the route in its entirety, lower than rap from the mid-station anchor.

The 10a that goes left after bolt 4 is fun but sharp. Great position!

I agree. The left route after the rap anchors is a LOT of fun
