Crack / Bulge

FA: Ament?
Colorado > Boulder > Boulder Canyon > Sentinel Slab
Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

This is an obvious line on the right side of the crag. It may or may not have been ascended previously, there were quite a few hazardous, loose blocks along the way.

P1. Start up near the right end of the crag in a blocky, less-than-vertical section with obvious holds and intermittent cracks. Angle left, gain the lower angle section above following and dancing around cracks aiming for a pair of trees. Belay at the trees.

P2. Angle off and right on easy terrain with a 4th class move just before the top.

Location

Find this line at a weakness in the bulging section at the right end of the crag.

Protection

A rack with an emphasis on smaller cams to a #0.75 with a #3 and 3.5 Camalot works. A longer (48") sling is nice for the belay.
