The main tower on the left has 8 long routes 105m to 130m in length.

Getting ThereAfter 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.
