Hong Kong Phooey is the sport climb on the slab left of Inner Chi and Japanimation. It comprises thin edging at a consistent grade, to a large hueco near the top, with the last move stepping left to a bolted anchor (shared with a 5.9 crack climb to its left- "Miagi").

The holds feel a little flakey, which is probably normal for newer face climbs in Zion.


6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

Currently , as of 7/15/13, there is a wasp nest in a hueco between the 3rd and 4th bolt. I got suckered in by the bail draw left on the route and got swarmed but not stung. be careful
