Does not get any better for a 5.10a in southwestern Utah. Not as common as Red Cloud, because of the awkard rappel. In other words, it traverses so much, it must be seconded to be cleaned. You rappel down a different side of the tower. Incredible steep traverse on bomber rock that would not be very forgiving if you fell on lead. Soul Asylum is not a place to push your lead limit. This form of limestone serves as a human sized cheese grater. I liked this route more than Red Cloud even because of the variation side pulls on the traverse. Super stuff!

Descent Options:

Rappel down the west side of the tower.
