Description 

-True Grit Boulder-

This is a GHSP classic, a favorite to many, and a great V-5 to tick off during your visit... This line is a must do for anyone visiting GHSP!

sit start at the bottom of the middle of the boulder under a sharp, smallish flake and match on it. The feet are almost non-existent, (existing only on micro crystals, or later in the problem on previously used hands).
trend left making pumpy, near campus bumps through sharp flakes with feet smeared or on anything you can place them on.
follow the line of flakes to a ledge that is below the lip, and then shoot to the lip for a good top out.

True Grit is pretty sharp, but thats part of its charm (Get this line ticked and you'll call it a V4).


Location 

When looking at the True Grit Boulder, the problem "True Grit" runs up the middle from a sit start on a small, sharp flake with only micro crystal feet. the line follows more small, sharp flakes, to a ledge below the lip, and then to a good top out.
