Description 

P1: Climb the first pitch of Sentinel Buttress.

P2: From the crows nest step up and left, aiming for a triangular roof. Careful, getting established under this roof is tricky. Yard over the overhang and get situated below the next one. Plug some bomber gear and make sure you look down at the 100+ feet of air below you after you ape out the roof.

Protection 

Rack of singles should do it

5.9 on thin horizontals for the first 25 feet, then up and left into an alcove under the "Bulge." A V1 boulder problem, very well protected, gets you through the crux overhanging section.
