Sentry Mountain
Crowsnest Pass, Alberta
July 21, 2002

Sentry Mountain 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.

Scrambling became more interesting as we climbed higher
