Classic! This is a fantastic, left finish to the "True Grit" line.

True Grit Left follows the iconic slot flakes from the sit start in a diagonal line to the left. Both "True Grit" and "True Grit Left" follow these flakes, but "Left" works further left to the massive jug shelf as opposed to heading direct with the thin crimp side-pull.

-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.

On the True Grit Boulder:

This is an alternate finish to "True Grit" proper. This problem follows the iconic slot flakes from the sit start, in a diagonal line to the left. there are three portions of these flake slots, and both TG proper and TG left exit follow them. the left exit follows a large move out to a high left slot jug and tops out way left from the sit start and TG proper move straight up to a sidepullish crimp rail and then into another jug to top out straight above the 3rd portion of slot flake.
