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.
This route is located a couple of hundred yards past the left end of the Tieranny Wall.
Six bolts to large cold-shut anchors.

Anchors are really bad - rusted and pulling out.

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