Ronca on Truth, 5.11+.

Truth may be the biggest roof crack on Lumpy so far, and lucky for you it's an offwidth! (If you like thinner and harder roof cracks, try its neighbor 8 ft to the right, Consequences 5.12.)

From the back of the cave, stuff your feet into the crack above you and work your way out on overhanging heel-toes. Continue out the roof through all the sizes, and then crank over the lip.


Truth is located about half way down the Bookend descent. Look for a cave with two roof cracks coming out of it. Truth is the wide crack on the left and Consequences is the thin hand crack on the right.


Bring doubles of #6 C4 Camalot down to #0.75 Camalot. We found an old school #4 Camalot to be handy as well.
