Description 

The Asylum is a tall formation separated from the main part of North Mountain by the lagoon "Laguna Prieta". The boulder problems are located on the backside of the formation away from the road. There are around 20 established problems here on four main boulders. The V-Obsession boulder, Theater of the Absurd, Asylum Crack and Stanage on Holiday.

Getting There 

From the front side parking area, where the gate and bathrooms are, follow a small valley through the boulders on a well established trail. You will pass several picnic areas en-route. The trail eventually turns right and the Asylum is the tall formation on your right, away from the main part of North Mountain.
