The route is on the rear pinnacle of the two satellite pinnacles situated in front of the main Frederick Peak (called South Sentinel). The two satellite pinnacles lie in a Nth-Sth orientation. In helicopter recon, it appears that South Sentinel has the most potential. Corner, then grey wall on south pinnacle starting from saddle. Abseil descent (bring a sling).
