P1. Begin by climbing the low angle corner to a small overhang (crux.) Climb past it and continue up a series of ramps and corners to a bolted belay next to a left facing corner. 5.10b

P2. From the belay, traverse left and climb the bolted face to a two bolt anchor below a large roof. A great and exciting pitch! 5.10c/d


This climb is located below and to the left of a large roof in the middle of the Asylum wall. Find the low angle corner with a bolt about 15ft up


Bolts, bolted anchors. Bring a few small cams to protect some of the runouts between bolts, especially on the second pitch.
