The Watchtower is the tallest cliff at the The Soul Asylum. The routes range in height from 55 feet to 160 feet. The buttress is divided in two by a shallow and vegetated gully. This area hosts the largest concentration of easier grades varying from .9 to .10d
Upon approaching the The Soul Asylum
, about 20 feet into the walk, you'll come across a faint, cairn marked, trail on the left.

These bolts mark and share the start of the first three routes of The Watchtower
