Description 

The Tieranny Roofs wall is home to the longest routes in the Obed and, obviously, some pretty awesome roofs. Climbs range from 5.10a (mostly ascending the "slabby" face below the huge roof that caps the wall) to 5.13+ (David Hume's "Body Count"). The wall is south-facing and gets good winter sun. Recommended gear includes a 60m rope and stick clip.


Getting There 

Park at the Overlook parking lot and follow the trail to an obvious signed split. Follow the right hand (Point Trail) fork into the woods. This trail descends down to a bridge, then weaves back up to the ridgeline between the Obed and Clear Creek. Follow this rolling trail through the woods for a good half-mile until it dips to a second little creek crossing, then continue for quite a ways further, past a rocky slab, then out to almost the very end of the point. Here an obvious steep descent trail drops down to the right. 15 feet of fourth class will reach a good trail that runs along the cliff back to west. Pass underneath the Pocket Roofs cave (a pretty impressive wall in and of itself) and on a little further to the obvious Tieranny Roofs. A massive stone "bench" at the base of the cliff and the pink and grey wall below the roofs are additional clues if there's any doubt. Approach time is about 1/2 hour.

Start

Whatsherface 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  TN : Obed & Clear Creek : Tieranny Roofs
Whatsherface is a great route on a clean, slightly overhanging panel of golden sandstone. The first crux comes low with sequential, fingery climbing to a fun toss to a jug. Rest up on good feet and horizontal hand jams, then climb sustained rock to the upper, very low percentage, crux. Easier, but very pumpy climbing through the final roofs brings you to the Captain Hook-style cold shut anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in TN

This wall is actually a part of what is called "The Obed" wall. If you take the trail near the river, you will approach the sections from West to East. In order, Tierrany Wall, Middle Obed Wall, The Underground Wall, Fort Sandstone Wall, West Obed Wall, and Area-X Wall.
