having a great time!


I would have given this three stars if only the rock quality was good and solid. But really it's good enough for a good time. I recommend this route if you are warming up for the other routes in the area.

Climb the really fun steming corner. Exit right at it's top before climbing out of belayer view for another 30 feet of fun climbing.


Obvious corner as you enter The Asylum.


Bolts to anchor. We left lowering biners to make the funky anchor work better.

i changed it to 5.7+, i took the grade off long before the guide came out and never updated it... thought it was a hard 5.7 though... you do anything else out there? love this wall and all the other stuff out that way...

I agree it is certainly tough for 5.7. No we just climbed that, there was a lot that was wet out there. I will be spending more time out here though.

This route should be called "BBQ The Spiders" which is what I wanted to do about halfway up. Stout spider-battling stick highly recommended.

Actually an enjoyable route once you have won the battle against your eight-legged foes.
