Getting There 

After the Wadi Bih turn travel for 5km to the t-junction by the radio tower. Turn right travel for 800m then turn right again (South East)on to gravel road that leads in to Wadi Qada'a. Sentinel is visible and very easy to identify.

There is a small farm at the bottom and a small parking area on the right side of the road. From the parking area it is a 273 meter hike up the very steep base to the bottom of the North side of the tower. The approach is over very loose rocky terrain. We hiked to the base from the parking area with out any gear and it took us 15 min.

This is an easy multipitch route that you can do in 2 or 3 pitches depending on how much gear you bring and the length of your rope. It follows up the obvious deep crack line in a sort of chimney. There are several great ledges to to rest on and set up as your belay station. This is a great route for beginners. It is a very easy route for experienced climber but is exciting and challenging for beginners. There is a great crack line for bomber placement the whole way up. The route also has a smal...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
