Truth in Advertising starts just left of Rose Garden. The first bolt is a little ways off the ground, but the climbing is straight forward on good holds. Continue up and right past two more bolts to a hidden pin in a horizontal (can be backed up with a medium cam). One more bolt leads to the anchors.


Located on the right side of the No Money Down area, immediately to the left of Rose Garden.


Four bolts and a pin. Quick clips at the anchor.

There is a pin in the horizontal crack part way up and I know this is described in the protection description but I have seen countless people miss the pin and start freaking out because it is "run out"...

Everything about this climb is better than neighboring climb "Rose Garden". Slightly harder but moves are much better.

Iwas there when either you or Bob saw the pin and thought it was to rusted to use and climbed it complaining that it was run out
