Just to the right of True Grit is a thin crack distinguishable by a left facing flake near the bottom. Face climb up to the crack, then follow it up and into a dihedral past two bolts to a mossy ledge and the True Grit anchor. Rappell as for True Grit.

5 out of 5 stars Good times

Don't climb at the diamond without climbing Festoon. A little run out between the flake and the first bolt. I tried to clean the dirt out of the corner the best I could last week, so should climb better!

5 out of 5 stars history

origanal route traversed left to the crack,avoiding any face climbing and was first climbed by garvey/sweeney. the direct finish and 2 bolts were added in '99 and upped the grade to 10a/b. topout is mossy so watch out. chain link was used for hangers on the bolts, not the best, and could be replaced. i probably won't cause when we put the bolts in, that big rockslide gully wasn't so close, know what i mea n

hmm...followed this one...not too sure I want to lead it though. It has some fun movement, but it's a little sketch in a couple of spots.
