Going to be at Mississippi palisades on Friday 5/6. Looking for a partner and some beta.

As for beta, I was wondering which routes you can walk up to set up top rope anchors, and what should I bring to build anchors on the sentinel?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

You can walk to the top of every route in the park with the exception of the routes on the Sentinel and those on the Twin Sisters. For Sentinel anchors bring long slings and medium to large stoppers.

Most of the routes have bolts at the top, especially in the sentinel area. Long slings or webbing to get to the edge for a few of them. If you want to do the sentinel itself, you'll have to lead up on easy climbing but slick, chossy pro.

Would you consider staying an extra day? : )

Actually, I may be able to do that. Are you all meeting up somewhere in particular?

Looks like I'm not going to make it this weekend. Tweaked my shoulder in the gym. Taking a couple of weeks off to heal up
