Description

This is one of the better routes on the wall, and has two anchors and two grades. It ascends vertical rock on smaller pockets and a few chicken-head tufas. There is a .10b crux at about 50 feet, and a .11a crux at about 80. There is an anchor at 70 feet allowing you to climb just the 10b part. This line continues 300 feet (3 more pitches) up the wall to a big orange ledge. See "Going Dutch."

Location

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

Protection

Titanium, 2010s. 9 draws to the first anchor, 12 to the 100 ft anchor.
