4 pitches (25m each) of 5.10 climbing comprise this much sought after gem. It begins at a two-bolt belay from a ledge underneath the S.E.-facing arete. The ledge is accessed from the backside of the Sentinel via a narrow crossing over a gully. One 60m rope can suffice, though two is always better. Enjoy.

Part of Joe A's visit, 2008. Pumped out from Sisyphus Summits the day before....this was set up to be sort of a rest day, but found it still quite pumpy. The 5.10c 2nd pitch was quite sustained we thought. The roof move on pitch 3 was a blast and the 4th pitch was by far the best pitch. Good stuff. No one else climbing either routes this day on the Grand Sentinel.
