South Sentinel and Forgotten Wall both Closed. Details

Description

This route is a challenge right from the start. The crux is at the bottom where a short 7ft crack turns horizontal to meet up with the rest of the crack just to the right of it. Using a nice jug that's deep in the crack and some clever smearing you can set yourself up nicely to make the transition between the two cracks. After the crux is below you a series of well placed hand jams will give you success.

Location

The route is in the brother's buttress and twin sisters area and is just to the right at you pass the lower wall of the twin sisters on the trail that comes up from the road, parking lot, and outhouses below.

Protection

There is one large boulder and one 3ft round boulder on top of the bluff that make for great top rope anchors but if your short on gear there are some good living trees that will do the trick if set up properly

As I was soloing this back in the 80's I was nearing the top when a snake slithered out of the exit crack. I decided to downclimb the route rather than chance having another snake peek out at me as I climbed by. Jul 13, 2010
