Scott on "Flip".

Description 

Although the bottom part of this route is steep for a 5.9 (perhaps not for the Obed), it involved climbing on friendly jugs, and I felt that the crux of the route was pulling out and over the small roof/dihedral at the top of the route. The Kelly Brown guidebook shows the route exiting left onto the face well before the roof though.

Location 

This route is located a couple of hundred yards past the left end of the Tieranny Wall.

Protection 

Six bolts to large cold-shut anchors.

The shuts on this route are very worn and rusty, be careful rapping the route after climbing it.
