Description 

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.


Location 

Blood Drive is the center route up the tallest wall at the The Soul Asylum.


Protection 

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
