Description 

Sage Truth ascends one of the most beautiful, vertical faces I've seen in Unaweep Canyon. The rock is perfect in quality, the landing is great, and movement is quite fun.

Stand start with left and right hand sidepulls. From there, work straight up the vertical face using a series of incut crimps, sidepulls, and gastons. At about the halfway point (crux), gain a pair of vertical crimp rails and top it out.

Location 

It ascends the center of Royal Rock's west face.

Protection 

Bring a few pads, and a spotter would be good idea as well. The landing is very good, but the problem climbs high.
