Description 

Crystal Ship, named in memory of Steve Badour (and his favorite band), is across and slightly up the gully from Teachers Pet. From the base, scramble up the easy gully 20', then move left along a small ledge to clip the first bolt. Straight up from there . . . enjoy!

There are some interesting thoughts about reasons behind the name of the tune "The Crystal Ship" Check'em out.

Protection 

10 bolts to the rap anchors.
