Sentinel Pass

Description 

This area is located just to the south of Mt. Temple, the highest peak in the Banff area. There are several quartzite towers in the area, the Grand Sentinel being the most climbed.


Getting There 

Approach via the trail to Sentinel Pass from Moraine Lake. As of 2012, a minimum of 4 people is required due to park restrictions from bear activity. However,this is a very popular hike so it is easy to join up with others at the trailhead.

The Grand Sentinel is located about 1km beyond the pass, towards the Paradise Valley.
