Description 

This cliff is located in a highly forested area and offers respite from the sun on hot summer days. This is a smaller area but contains a high percentage of quality crack climbs. The lack of beginner climbs and the somewhat exposed approach make this a less than ideal spot to bring beginners.

Getting There 

Park at the Summit Rock Trail parking area. Follow the trail into the woods and eventually take the right fork. Ascend a set of wooden stairs. The top of sentinel crack is to the right of this trail. If you start descending another set of wooden stairs you have gone to far.

The descent is a third class scramble past the top of sentinel crack. Scramble away from the climb and then work back towards the climb. The trail can be a little slick with pine needles, so be careful. A large tree about half way down makes a conveinent anchor/rappel point if needed.

Juneko leads Lost Ego.

Lost Ego 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  WI : Interstate State Park : Sentinel Area
Follow the slightly less than vertical hand and fist crack to a large pod. Make some commiting moves out of the pod (crux) and continue on the finger crack to the top. This route protects well for its duration and is probably my favorite lead at Taylor's. A large cam (#4 camalot) adds some security for the crux. For Minnesota multipitch fun climb Sentinel Crack as a second pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

Does anyone know the name of the route around the corner to the right of Lost Ego. It starts at two birch trees just around the corner, and climbs a really nice hand crack to less protectable jugs for an exciting finish. Cleaned it off today, really fun. Hope it gets more traffic. Any info would be great. - Sam
