Description 

This formation makes up part of a somewhat hidden but easily accessible corridor that is home to several high quality routes well worth seeking out. The most notable routes here are Shock Therapy (5.10c) a route up steep buckets to a very Josh-like steep slab and Split Personality (5.11d) a classic balancy arete to thin face with good rock. Despite the area's proximity to the Hall of Horrors this can be a good area to escape the usual crowds there.


Getting There 

Approach past Conrad Rock to the upper entrance of the Asylum and Scary Rock or head up past Target Rock (N. Face) and up a rocky notch to Split Personality Rock and The Asylum. The approach takes 15-20 minutes from the closest parking area.

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 star...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
