Description

This route is steep and exposed but the climbing is generally very mellow for the grade. Work a corner then pull a roof. Be careful of loose blocks.

P1: Low 5th class, 15m. Start around the left corner and climb a short pitch to a ledge with a bolted belay.

P2: 5.7, 20m. Cracks and face climbing lead to another bolted belay at a small ledge below the obvious right facing corner.

P3: 5.8, 25m. Climb the corner past a bulge to a bolted belay at a ledge.

P4: 5.9, 25m. Climb cracks straight above the belay to the summit. An easier version goes left at about 5.4.

Location

This route is on the south side of the Grand Sentinel.

Approach Note: be careful scrambling along the talus on the left side after dropping down from the pass, the last time I was there in Aug, an entire 50m wide section started sliding/avalanching. The hiker's trail to the right side of the valley is probably safer and only an additional 10 mins.

Protection

Standard rack, .3 to 4. Rappel with a 60m rope.
