DescriptionLocated on the left side of the left-facing portion of Old Peculiar, Knee On is the only pure crack climb on the face. It is steep and feet are hard to come by at times. The crux is a slightly-overhanging series of lieback moves about 3/4 of the way up.
ProtectionSolid granite make protecting Knee On pretty straightforward. Cams to 3.5" should do the trick. For the top, bring a few feet of slings, some nuts, and/or some small cams.
Also note there is a piece of gray webbing that is stuck in the top of the crack, it won't help your anchor and try to avoid having your webbing experience the same fate.
