This is a must-visit boulder while at GHSP. Steep, proud, and unforgiving. True Grit houses one of the most loved and hated V5's in the park "True Grit". The holds on this line are thin, deep flakes with only feint pebbles and ripples on which to stand. If you donít have your footwork down to an art on "True Grit" you'll need to muster up your own true grit to get you to the top.

Also on this boulder are a handful of other lines that will test your tendons and core; "Lynchmob" and "Palisade".

Getting There 

Follow the Split Rock Bouldering Trail that starts between the two large Oak trees (behind the little green box) at the park office. The trail will lead you directly to the Periscope Boulder.The True Grit Boulder will be just a bit further and left od Periscope. You can't miss it. Its larger, steep, and awesome.
