Ronca on Truth, 5.11+.

Season raptor closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Truth may be the biggest roof crack on Lumpy so far, and lucky for you it's an offwidth! (If you like thinner and harder roof cracks, try its neighbor 8 ft to the right, Consequences 5.12.)

From the back of the cave, stuff your feet into the crack above you and work your way out on overhanging heel-toes. Continue out the roof through all the sizes, and then crank over the lip.

Location 

Truth is located about half way down the Bookend descent. Look for a cave with two roof cracks coming out of it. Truth is the wide crack on the left and Consequences is the thin hand crack on the right.

Protection 

Bring doubles of #6 C4 Camalot down to #0.75 Camalot. We found an old school #4 Camalot to be handy as well.
