JB Waterman works the North Face.

Description 

Sustained 5.8 face climbing. A fun route, definitely worth doing.


Location 

First face on the approach to the cove, on the right after the boulder scramble. Longer than most routes here.


Protection 

Solo the east face of Sentinel to set up anchor on the bolts/chain.

You can definitely place pro on the 5.4 east face if you aren't comfortable free-soloing it.

I thought it was harder than 5.8 especially if you go to climber's right at the top.

Note: if you go towards the middle/right of this face halfway through it's no longer 5.8 and you'll have to pull a 5.9+/5.10- (if you're shorter than 5'8) move near the top.

When you climb this, assume you're free soloing it... the pro on either side (east or west face) is on very rotten rock and probably won't hold a decent fall.
