Near the last bolt of True Grit.


Climb little lips and slab crossing a gap and onto an wide arete. It feels similar to climbs in Paradox.


This is the leftmost and tallest route on the wall.


7 bolts to anchors.

Good climb! My favorite on Grit Wall with a great view as a reward. Well bolted and lots of fun! There is a loose block above the first bolt as you move onto the first ledge, just FYI.
