Red Sentinel from the southwest.

Description 

See earlier notes.

Location 

The wide crack on the southeast side of the tower is unmistakable. Climb it, traverse right to the north side, and continue up the left edge of the north face.

Protection 

Stoppers and smallish cams or tcu's for the second pitch. The initial wide crack has no pro unless you carry a big cam or hex, in the #5 or greater range (for a cam.)

The first pitch of this was certainly an eye opener. I think you could protect with a #3 cam in one or two spots, but you'd really want a #4 or #5. The crack is much more fist to shoulder sized than hand crack sized (as our guidebook described it). It certainly intimidated me as a rather new trad leader with gear up to a #2 cam.
