BETA PHOTO: The line of Flight of the Phoenix...
Maybe my favorite route here so far... Fun technical climbing on steep rock with good but funky, spicy gear...
With some good gear craft this one can be safe but the pro can be very tricky and small... I worked it out on TR first... Start to the right of the tree near the base of the steep wall and climb up and a little left past funky holds and a pocket or 2 before trending back right and up to the top... Belay from the trees...
Start right of the tree at the base of the steep part of the cliff...
Purple cam (wierd placement in a pocket) about halfway up and a small nut near the top were key for me... A tricam might work in place pf the camalot...
