Shamick always told me that "Mr. Phi Phi isn't the name of that climb" and after three years he has remembered/decided that "High Noon" is the name of the climb.
Long and sustained, this one is a must do on the wall. It ascends a white arete of flowstone that steepens as you get higher. From the anchor, you could continue another 20 feet past 3 Titanium bolts for a 5.11 finish. See "Lois Lane" and "Going Dutch."
Left Sector. From the trail, walk left past the loose section of rock. You will see an obvious white arete of flowstone... This is "Mr. Phi Phi." From the loose rock to the patch of vegetation going up the wall (climbers right to left) the climbs are as follows:
- Seven Samurai
- Mr. Phi Phi
- Lois Lane
- Trong Pai
- Baron Von Tok
- Latitude Eight
- Brian Fagman
Ti and SS glue in bolts, threads. 12 draws.

I'd call this the 3rd best route on Tonsai Tower we did, after #1 Rev de Phi Phi Don and Seven Samurai. Fun crux.
