Sentry Mountain
Crowsnest, Alberta
July 21, 2002

This trip was straightforward and interesting. Near the top, the scrambling becomes more challenging. If you don't mind exposure, stay close to the ridge. Instead of returning the same way, we ran down the scree in the drainage and followed a drainage out at the bottom.
