The access route for the lines around Thunder Mountain and Glove Rock, this line can be booted or skinned. If you choose to boot it, a good idea is to gain a little height en route to Glove Rock and then use this height to ski fast across the next section of the approach to Thunder Mountain, thereby leaving you with a relatively short final climb.
If you choose to skin, then simply ski to the top of the Sentinel run and skin directly to your chosen line from there.
Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
