Rolofson limits the Overhang area on its West (left) side with The Ground Doesn't Lie. Since there is a good break between The Ground and The Pigeon Pile Pinnacle in the Table Top area, I have followed suit here - for the time being. The Ground... is a small, three bolt, boulder problem (now extended and retrobolted to 7 bolts) that sits 50 feet left of the very popular 5.9 called In Between the Lines. Its most obvious feature is just being small (now less so). Surmount several tricky finger locks passing two clips and solve the crux at the third bolt. Hint: look around. This rounded buttress is something of an arete and has good holds on both sides. I thought that there was an additional sequence to be solved just getting to the anchor after the last bolt. This is a nice problem and is worth figuring out. It feels a little insecure.


Three draws and a rope. Now, this has 7 bolts.
