Directly above the P1 corner is a white face with horizontals. Pull through the 9+ horizontals and get gear when you can. This section is slightly runout until you can pull onto the next large ledge, so be comfortable at the grade. Either belay on the ledge or continue up. The drag is not severe to continue as a single pitch. Several variations exist to exit the final wall. Move left on the ledge to the base of a small finger crack. This crack ends and more big juggy horizontals start. Follow these up to the base of a large roof and pull right around the roof. Belay above the roof and walk off left using a gravely trail. You reach the top after doing two easy moves over small sections of rock.
Most parties climb the P2 of Lost in Space, but it is worth finishing Star Trekkin' at least once.
