Description Suggest change

Pitch 1: Begin on an open book at the north end of The Sentinel (west face). First 15 feet or so are difficult to protect but go at about 5.5. Continue through the offwidth section (5.6) and place a #4 Camalot. Continue up and right through some bushes through easy 5th class and trend right to a tree with some webbing wrapped around it. Belay off the tree.

Pitch 2: Continue up from the tree, trending slightly left. Pass through some loose rock (can be difficult to protect) through some 5.5 or 5.6 climbing, placing pro where you can. Continue up through the offwidth (protect the bottom with #5 cam and the top with a #6 cam). Build a gear anchor on the ledge at the top of the offwidth.

Pitch 3: Follow the path of least resistance up easy 5th class to the summit. Not great options for protection. Belay off the rappel anchor which is a large block slung with cord/webbing. 

Protection Suggest change

Gear: Single set #.4-#6 Camalot

DESCENT: Rappel off the summit block slung with webbing/cord to the saddle at the SE end of the formation with a 60m rope. Inspect cord/webbing and be prepared to leave new anchor material.
