DescriptionThis 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 TherePark 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.
