I've been wondering if I should skip words I already know. I've come upon several of them. But I think I'll keep writing for every one because it's good practice. 

crucible \KROO-suh-buhl\, noun:
1. A severe, searching test or trial.
2. A container of metal or refractory material employed for heating substances to high temperatures.
3. Metallurgy. A hollow area at the bottom of a furnace in which the metal collects.

This was it. The crucible. This would separate the men from the boys. Jack eyed the obstacle course. The quintuple step. The rolling log. The salmon ladder. And ultimately, the warped wall. He knew he'd be the next American Ninja Warrior.
