Description Suggest change

Visible from the parking area, this distinctive arete is perhaps the best route in The Asylum and fully worth the short hike to access it.

The lower section is a balancy, sharp arete which gives way to an easier middle section. The crux comes at the very end with small edges on excellent rock, and while possible to "escape" left and make this a little easier, the better rock and moves lie straight up.

Great rock, excellent position and engaging technical moves make this a stellar route. Four stars out of five.

Protection Suggest change
