Description

Can be done in 1 or 2 pitches. I would recommend one, which definitely can be done with a 60m rope and I believe it can be done with a 50m.

Begin on the nice-looking right-facing dihedral, on the right (south) end of the west face of the formation. Good protection, good rock. Follow the lichen-covered crack in the middle of the dihedral to a small roof and step left, continuing on easy 5th class to the summit. The crack can also be continued through the roof (5.7) instead of traversing left.

Protection

Gear: Single set to #2 Camalot, set of nuts.

Anchors: Can use webbing/ cordlette around summit boulders. There was some new webbing with rap rings already placed when I climbed it (9/05).

Descent: Walk off easy 4th class heading east, to the east saddle, then descend north to join the approach route to the Sentinel.
