P2 in its entirety from second belay. Had big cams for the flake, so used them. Double rope technique is very helpful for a climb like this! Takes a little more management effort at belays, but once climbing, it is much nicer, IMO.

We walked down and did White Whale, which doesn't have any moves as difficult as getting to the very short tree at the beginning of the P1 crack.

Comments: Did this today with my son. Very enjoyable this time. Didn't see another soul from the time we left the BC trail, 'til we were back at the parking lot.

Comments: I think that this is actually taken from the south-southeast of the crag. In the vicinity of the Black Canyon Trail. The red line is on the SW face.

Comments: Now, what was that thread about packing heat?? That would be one time I might feel a little more comfortable with a 40 or 45 handy, just in case... :-)
