Description 

The first pitch has no pro (essentially an X rated lead) so you should be solid at free soloing 5.7 chimney and 5.6 face for this one. Climb the deep chimney between the North and South Astro Domes for about 50 feet (5.7), then move right and climb the face (5.6) up to a 2 bolt anchor. (80 feet)

Pitch 2: (actually Throat Warbler Mangrove's 2nd pitch) Up the slab to a horizontal crack, traverse right to a low-angle crack in a corner, following this up to a lieback flake leading up and right (5.6) to the top.


Protection 

To 3 inches
