Malieka on the pull-around move.

August 2009

Description 

Start up a small, left-facing corner which leads into a somewhat heady traverse with insecure feet. The traverse takes you left around a thick, triangular flake which then joins the Devaluation Direct line. Continue climbing the thinner, left-facing corner toward the "death block" at 11 o'clock above.


Location 

Left of Crack of the Eighties. Walk off the top to climber's right.


Protection 

Rack to 3". Tricky pro on the initial start and traverse--place carefully and use multi-directional pieces to avoid zippering!

Gear anchor required.

The block is quite unnerving! I used it, but pulled as lightly as I could. I think the 5.9 variation on the right (small dihedral and lay back section) is much safer and just as fun.
