Comments: I spent about an hour yesterday trying to find the right combination of moves that would make the start (as noted by Baumer's photo) less than 5.8. There was no way my partner was going to be able to make the moves, so I finally gave up. 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.

Didn't quite feel up to exploring around the roof to the right. Next time...

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.
