This somewhat complex jumble of rocks lies to the west of The Sentinel and is home to about a dozen routes from 5.7 to 5.12c with the majority being in the 5.10 and under range.
Approach as for The Sentinel - West Face but instead of cutting left into the small valley with that formation continue west over some rocks to reach the formation. The west side is more easily approached from the vicinity of Wimp Tower or even Zombie Woof Rock.
