Description 

Scary Rock guards the upper entrance to The Asylum and has a small number of routes on it's north and west faces. Just north (left) of this is Keith's Wall and directly across is the southern end of Split Personality Rock. Notable routes here include Thorazine Left (5.11b) and Thorazine Right (5.12a).

Getting There 

The best approach is to pass Conrad Rock and head for a rocky notch where the top of Scary Rock will be visible. The approach takes 15-20 minutes from the closest parking area.
