Cool knob and crystal features. Slopy crux getting onto the slab.

From the broken knob move up to an edge on the next black inclusion with your left. There are lots of possible intermediates or holds for your right, but ultimatly you want to get to the second black spot above the one your left is on. from there move right to another knob and stand up.


When you first come to the boulders don't go into the corridor. Instead head around the right side behind them to the back of the second boulder. Right near a tree you will see a high knob that has a very square cut section broken out, start here and go pretty much straight up.

This upper portion of this compact area is called the Crystal Ship after a problem in the corridor.

Oddly enough I never remember us calling the knob problem anything except something like Sports Challenge or something silly. One of the best at Three Gun.

I've always known it as "The Pig Bitch," at least that's what Johnny Rotten calls it.
