If you’ve decided to make the hike a loop, this is where you head next. Walk south of Sentinel Point along the east side of the ridge toward another saddle (pictured here). Then head west down the hill. As you stand in the saddle you’ll see a massive rock formation to your westsouthwest about .75 mile away. Begin your descent here, heading more or less toward this rock. THERE IS NO TRAIL! I would not have attempted this without trekking poles. The decomposed granite is slippery. Boulders abound, as do cliff faces. If you follow my GPS track, you’ll make it down to the stream that becomes Horse Thief Falls, where you’ll pick up the trail back to the trail head. My track is even south of where I would have like to have gone. Between 11600 and 11200, the terrain is STEEP.
