Description 

The easy laidback east face of Sentinel Tower. Massive jugs and ladder-like climbing. Crux is probably the top-out move.

Location 

The large laid back face to the right of the big chimney crack. For a good alternate, scramble through the chimney to the ledge facing the river.

Protection 

Chicken necks can be slung in a couple spots, or use large active pro in the pockets. Bolts on top for anchor.

View from the top is worth it. Really is an easy climb. there's a bit of a face in the middle around the "suit-case" hold that's not the greatest to set pro from - but other-wise plenty of ledges along the way to sling chicken necks. Tri-cams work pretty well in the shallow pockets too. SLCD Cams are pretty hard to find placements for.
