Description

Another area classic, if only the climb were longer. The climb begins on a small ledge about half way up the cliff. Two option exist for reaching the ledge. You can either climb the face below (5.10a) or climb the bottom of Sentinel Crack and traverse left to reach the bottom of the climb. I'd recommend the face below unless you are leading. The crux of the climb is getting off the ground. The climb starts out as thin hands and slowly widens to fists at the top.

Location

This route is located to the climber's left of Sentinel Crack.

Protection

Cams and hexes from thin hands to fists. For the top rope setup you probably need about 100' of webbing for trees and you might find a nut placement up there somewhere too, but the pro is primarily the trees.

Rite of passage for MN and WI leaders looking to head out west and climb the big stone. Awesome by MN standards. Jun 3, 2014
The start below the ledge has very poor pro. Fun good pro from the ledge on. May 21, 2013

This is a great crack, tough to get started but very rewarding once you get it. I recommend climbing the 5.10a face right below it to get to the ledge. The face has some interesting moves. Feb 25, 2009

This one is great. Straight in straight on. No typical horizontals for rests that you usually get at TF. Its a pumper for being so short.
