Can't remember what this part is called

Currently my main and jib halyards are at the mast and are cleated off there. I'd like to run the halyards to the cockpit to make singlehanding easier, and while I can visualize the parts I need I can't remember what the name of one of them them is.

What is the name of the block that would be attached to the base of the mast to turn the halyard through 90 deg from vertical to leading across the deck? To make the next turn I'd just use an organizer, or even just a cheek block since I only have one line on each side of the mast.

Does that sound right?
