Starting at Charlottes Pass follow the path to cross the Snowy River using the stepping stones. If the river is up you will probably have wet feet. Continue to follow the path towards Blue Lake. There is a viewing point for Blue Lake and a good place for a short stop to enjoy the views. Turn right onto the track towards Guthega and Mt Twynham and turn left on a faint pad after about 500 metres. From here you have a good view of the Sentinel. Follow the come and go pad down beside Strzelecki Creek where there is a nice campside and continue along the exposed ridge undulations crossing two exposed rocky ribs with reasonable handholds and footholds on each side. From the trig enjoy the panoramic view of Abbott Ridge and Mt Townsend to south, and Watsons Crags to the north. Return the same route or deviate onto Watsons Crags as shown on the gpx track.
