Isn't a phoenix the bird that lives to a certain age, self-immolates, and then rises from its own funeral pyre? Not quite the right connotations for a solo climb, but presumably we'll soon see the video.

The "Phoenix" free soled?

Most people have never tried it to realize how technical those jams at the crux are.
