Sentinel Tower, Totem Pole, East Face, Monument Valley. A De Chelly sandstone formation located just inside the Navajo Tribal Park on the southwest comer of Sentinel Mesa, Sentinel Tower, was climbed by Stan Mish and Dan Longmade (III, 5.9). A previously unreported climb was made by Mish and Glen Rank, who climbed the east face of the Totem Pole. The five previous ascents of this tower were made by the 1957 west-face route.
