-True Grit Boulder-

A GHSP classic.

Start low in the middle of the boulder. Look for the furthest right of the low flakes and start matched here. The feet are thin to start.

trend left bumping through sharp flakes.

At the last flakes, reach high to the very thin ripple/crimp and blast up to the higher jug. Follow good holds to the top.

-Note: This is an updated description after October 2017 when the main side-pull broke. The large right hand side-pull broke off completely, changing the original "True Grit" and True Grit Left sequences and grades.

Here is a Grayson Highlands Bouldering post for more information: GHB


When looking at the True Grit Boulder, the problem "True Grit" runs up the middle from a sit start on a small, sharp flake with only micro crystal feet. the line follows more small, sharp flakes, to a ledge below the lip, and then to a good top out.

Visited the weekend of 9/16-17 and noticed a broken hold (the hold was still lying on the ground) I'm interested to see what people think this goes for now. Sep 18, 2017

Yup, I was climbing with the group that broke the hold. We couldn't believe it broke! We all finished via the left exit. Sep 19, 2017
