Ball Bearing lies on the East Face of The Sentinel. Start left of Fote Hog (5.7) in left-trending finger crack that protects nicely with smaller size cams. Move right along horizontal crack and gain another left-trending crack. When this crack runs out just below the anchors, make a couple of spicy face moves to the 2-bolt anchor. Either rap from here (~100') or continue up second pitch. First pitch is generally well-protected. The second pitch is a bit spicy off the belay.


Nothing bigger than #2 Camalot. Double set of TCU's are helpful.

Bolted mid- point anchor (1/2" SS)
