Description 

The route starts below two parallel cracks near the base of the south buttress. Face climbing past 2 bolts leads to the right-hand crack. Crack climbing leads to a ledge. A short pitch up a left-facing dihedral leads to another ledge. The crux pitch climbs vertical knobs past 2 bolts. Belay on a spacious ledge with a massive block. Scramble back away from the edge and up until reaching the steep summit headwall. Climb a clean crack to the summit.

Location 

Cosmo climbs the buttress of rock that faces the road. This is the first piece of rock encountered along the hikers trail. A short bushwack from the trail leads to the base.

Protection 

Very small to 1-1/2"

Do not expect to find modern fixed gear.

The final pitch (about 5.9) of this route is the best way to reach the summit of Sentinel Peak. To access the final pitch, follow the hiker's trail around to the back (north side) of the peak. Follow a ledge system around the west side of the summit block until you arrive on the south side of the formation. The final pitch is located in a recess, in the center of the south face. See topo for details.
