Sentinel Climbing Notes

Gavin Raubenheimer from SOUTH AFRICA writes:

Sentinel has 9 different routes on it. The easiest way to the summit is via the Standard Route, graded E. This consists of one pitch, followed by scrambling and then one C grade pitch. The other popular route is the Angus-Leppan Route on the north face. This is 7 pitch moderate route. Use Sentinel Cave as a base or the hut at Sentinel car park.
