I didn't forget this. It's a very hard, tricky little stretch. Bizarre footwork at crux--definitely hard 10. It had a single old bolt, and you'd deck if you fell on the 5.9 above crux. Top rope all the way. Charie, face immediately right of Boston, is an excellent toprope as well. Stiff 5.9.
I don't know when, but as of 11/6/09, the old 1/4" bolt has been replaced with a new standard bolt. After leading this I feel that the gear is strenuous to place, but there, definitely not R anymore.

I couldn't disagree with Nick more. "Phoebe" is a great, intricate face route. Great horizontals and tricky footwork make "Phoebe" very memorable and worth doing, if you're finished with "Boston" or "Ken's Crack." Glad to know that it's a 5.10+

Not 10+. It's PG if you think that the small gear at the final overlap will hold. I thought it would on lead, and didn't after bounce testing on the way down. 5.10b 5.9R to me.
