Description 

True Grit is a rock complex with several routes on it. It is about 500 yards north of Tiny Town (which is just north of Castle Rock). It is called The South Hills of Zone Two.

Getting There 

Best to park in the Upper Trail Head parking by Castle Rock - head west through Tiny Town to the next trail junction. Head north on an old road looking for signs to True Grit and The Duke Complex. Fifteen minutes - a great secluded spot with sun/shade options.
