Sentinel Peak stands guard at the foot of the Upper Kern River Canyon. The trail up to the peak follows the ridge line that descends on the right-hand side of the peak.

The Upper Kern River Valley is home to the southern-most stand of old-growth giant sequoias, making the Trail of a Hundred Giants an excellent rest-day activity.

The only strange thing about this route is the location of the first bolt. Its placement in a protruding cobble does not inspire confidence. Many cobbles have pulled out over the years at Wheeler Gorge. As shown in the lower of the photos, there is a gaping hole from a pulled cobble just a couple of feet away from the first bolt.  <br /> <br />Since the first bolt protects the clear crux of the route, I was definitely wishing for something more reassuring.
