Really nice shot

...and a great idea to take it from Sentinel Tower.

Several other routes can be seen with great detail and clarity here. The prow of the buttress on the left (above the red-headed person with the white collar) is also a route, Nosey, a 5.6. For me, the start is the crux, and not the formidable-looking overhang near the top, above the yellowish band.

The crack to the left of Nosey (above the white rope bag) is called Pretzel and rated 5.9. It follows the crack, going right at the big flake.

Re: Really nice shot

Thanks for your comments and additional route beta! If you have any good photos and/or if you are able to add a route page for any of the other areas besides the Sentinel, they would be most welcomed.
