Move up to a small ledge and clip the first bolt. Continue up into the meat of the crux via several clips on the unique brown face. A few more clips through somewhat overhanging rock and you are at the anchor ledge, which sports clipping hooks. The route is rated 5.9, but I added a plus as I think it is on the stiffer side of the grade. YMMV.


From the approach trail, walk past Baba Fats on the left side of the cliff and head for the center/right wall of Greg's Cliff. This area has multiple routes within a short distance. Locate the obvious, vertical, chocolate brown face with bolts, which is Truth Decay.


Five bolts to double bolt anchor.

SHAMELESS SPOILER BETA: You need svelte, monkey fingers to stitch the crux move. Guys with boxer paws are likely to grade this as a low and frustrating 10.
