Shortly after leaving Kent Ridge in high spirits I was doubting my route choice to Inflexible. It was looking rather inflexible. :-) I believe that the discrepancy in trip reports regarding the difficulty of the traverse is simple. The traverse from Inflexible to Kent Ridge is quite a bit easier than the traverse in the opposite direction. This is due to two things, the (scramble) route is hard to spot from above, and the terrain is very loose and exposed when you get off route - much easier to ascend than descend.
!!Attention!! explor8ion.com is being updated and trip reports migrated to a new site while this one is still operational. The new version of this trip report can be found at https://verndewit.com/2012/08/09/kent-ridge-mount-inflexible/ and contains more photos in a modern format.
