Hissing Llamas is the easiest line on the Phoenix Buttress and is found on the left-hand side of the area, just right of a chalked up rounded arete.
Climb jugs through the first half of the climb before it starts trending left. The crux comes near the top as you work your way into a shallow corner. The holds get a little smaller and more insecure but it probably feels harder than it is after having just climbed up huge jugs for the majority of the route. A great climb for new leaders.
