Description

The Watchtower is the tallest cliff at the The Soul Asylum. The routes range in height from 55 feet to 160 feet. The buttress is divided in two by a shallow and vegetated gully. This area hosts the largest concentration of easier grades varying from .9 to .10d

Getting There

Upon approaching the The Soul Asylum, about 20 feet into the walk, you'll come across a faint, cairn marked, trail on the left. Follow this trail along the base of the wall and continue up until you reach the tallest and most proud section of the cliff. In the direct center of the rounded wall are a trail of bolts. These bolts mark and share the start of the first three routes of The Watchtower, Red Cloud, Blood Drive, and The Howling.
