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!

Start low in the middle of the boulder under a sharp, smallish flake and match on it. The feet are almost non-existent, (existing only on small nubs, or later in the problem on previously used hands).
trend left making pumpy 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 sharp (hence the name) but thats part of its charm (Get this line ticked and you'll call it a V4).
