The west face of The Sentinel is an impressive wall stacked with high quality routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.13 in difficulty.
Approach via the nature trail and head left at the fork passing along the base of an obvious large face (The Sentinel - East Face) on the left side of the trail. When you get to the northern end of the formation make a left (heading west) across some rocks and then make another left heading back south to reach the west face. The approach takes 5-10 minutes.
