Gently overhanging, yea right! Babes in Thailand,...
Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is an excellent route on gently overhanging rock, characterized by big moves between big holds, you're battling the pump all the way between poor rests before you have to do pump crux moves to clip the anchor.


Location 

Just left of Banana Hammock. Start on the big tufa then head up and left on steep rock and big, widely spaced huecos.


Protection 

bolts

I think this route is called Pla Lek in Sam's guide book.

Thanks for the correction, you are right, this is Pla Lek, not Death Blow. Not sure where I got Death Blow from, I guess this happens when you try to enter a route from memory long after you do it.
