Description

The Soul Asylum is a beautiful family crag with well done bolt jobs, A.M. sunshine, grades from 5.7-5.13b, and moderate 10-30 minute hike depending on where you park. The limestone here is of the same quailty as other St. George crags, having finger friendly water sculpted grey rock, with the occasional band of yellow looser rock that yields those much needed slots and pockets in the middle of an overhanging crux. If the access is allowed(please check with the local climbing shops), this is a great place for a family to enjoy...

Todd Goss's "Rock Climbes of Southwest Utah and the Arizona Strip" is an excellent guide to purchase for this and other St. George crags.

I also want to thank Lee Logsten, Jeff Baldwin, Lange Jefferies, Tim Roberts, Nancy McCullough, Todd Goss, and Darl Biniaz for their dedication to making this area the incredible place that it is!

Getting There

From Downtown St. George, head north on Bluff Street to the Sunset Blvd Intersection and turn left. Follow this road for 19.2 miles from the intersection (making sure to stay left at the Gunlock Reservior sighn fork in the road) and turn left through a cattle guard that is a bit tricky to see. You will know youve hit it if it goes downhill and is on a righthand bend of the road. Follow this dirt road all the way down and around left to the top of a hill with and old foundation of a house. from here go left (between the snake pit crag and the gorilla cliff crag) and follow it up to park on the right at a small area known as the simian complex. from here walk uphill on the road until you get to a white "No Tresspassing Gate" and follow the road past the gate into the wash. The Soul Asylum is the crag up the first major gully/canyon on your left, past a gated fenced off mine that says "no tresspassing".
