Description

A variation to get to crow's nest, to the right of Sentinel Buttress and to the left of Sentinel Direct. Follow the steep face to the right of the buttress corner until you get to the Crow's nest.

This route is already on the guidebook but for some reason wasn't here on Mountain Project.

Much better climbing to get to the crows nest than Sentinel Buttress!

Location

Left of sentinel direct and right of Sentinel Buttress

This route lives up to the name: lots of large holds for most of the route with a couple of slightly less incut sections to keep it interesting.

I found this route to be significantly harder to protect than the other 5.5 routes in the vicinity (Sentinel Buttress and Easy Hard). Jul 8, 2018
This route is much better than the usual approach to the Crow's Nest. Lots of stoppers and tricams. Jul 25, 2018
