Access Issue: Warning! Stainless steel bolts are suspect near the coast! Details

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

I think this route is called Pla Lek in Sam's guide book. Feb 17, 2008

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. May 13, 2008
This climb is called "little fish" in the Thailand Laos book. Superb pump fest, great line! Good practise if looking to get into overhung climbs. Mar 10, 2016
