DescriptionThe "North Face" is the side closest to the road and has a gully to the left that leads to "Sentinel Peak".
You will find three routes here. Two of the routes share a common last pitch.
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.
Standing on the road looking at the peak you will be facing North. There will be a gully running between the two peaks, the "North Face" is to the right of the gully. If you scramble up the gully you will be going towards "Sentinel Peak". You can also use this same gully to descend down from your climbs.
