Description

Scramble up to the namesake 7' tall slot with the flat ledge at the bottom. Thin gear in the back, with awkward stemming to get through this crux. Above, angle up and left, passing over non-descript blocky terrain with one or two tricky moves, to get to a shallow open book with a memorable wedged block with good pro that continues to the top. With a TR, you can also climb the arete right of the dihedral to finish.

You could also get to the upper dihedral on this climb by beginning the route with the left 'Easy Start' for ...Yucca ; 5.9 when done by this variation (don't say you climbed Phone Booth though)

Location

Phone Booth seeks out the obvious "phone booth"-shaped slot right of the lowest point of the New New Place. It is 2 cracks right of Batshit Crack; 1 crack right of the sick 5.12 open book Pure Thoughts.

Protection

Cams to 3 inches including micros, and nuts.
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top
