Description

Let's just face facts here. If you are the kind of person who finds yourself walking around in the woods talking to your imaginary belayer...it's time to have your crazy ass committed to the extremely hard climbs of The Asylum!

You have to be slightly wacked to want to climb here...but you'd be insane if you skipped this funhouse of a wall because Skeletal Remains has a much shorter hike.

Don't loose your mind trying to onsight anything here...you won't. The Asylum offers routes that are quite atypical for Spearfish Canyon. The climbs are highly technical and require a sort of inner strength and imagination that most normal people do not posses.

The bottom line is prepare to be sandbagged and frustrated. But keep trying! What do you have to lose besides your marbles?

Getting There

From the parking lot take trail 1. Head left and hike past the Head Shop Wall.

check your head.
