Mental Block ascends the slightly overhanging wall to the left of Microwave Dinner. Start climbing the left side of the wall, moving right towards the center as you climb.

Another hard one from the DLFA crew. Kudos to whomever got up this clean. I was loving the moves until I couldn't do them anymore. Undercling sound familiar?

512a/b is a sandbag, one of the few I was not able to figure out,
