The Sentinel Rock Climbing
This small chunk of stone is a secluded and rarely traveled wall that houses Jamminy Crackit
, one of the finest crack lines in the canyon. The stone looks like it is straight out of Vedauwoo, though once on it, you'll see it holds the gneiss that the Poudre is known for.
The Sentinel is due north and a little east of the summit of Greyrock. It is best found by descending from the first little pond along the summit trail (almost to the top of Greyrock). There is a highpoint clearly seen from the big pond on the summit looking north. Bushwhack to the West of that high point (you'll be descending to get there. It is a bit convoluted though there is a somewhat cairned trail. The most favorable approach is to climb one of the routes on Greyrock proper to the summit, then hike from there.

This is a Luebben/Brink Poudre Canyon classic. The crux is right off the deck, tackling steep, overhanging tips-fingers. The grade is kept at 11d due to decent feet. After the intitial crux, the crack gradually widens...thin hands, hands, traverse, wide hands, fists, and ends with OW. Superb climbing. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado

An easier approach is to follow the summit trail to its easternmost point. At this point, there will be a big face in front of you. Traverse right underneath the face and over a notch at the right end. Drop down the gully in the back that leads to The Sentinel.
