Right of Blue Diamond (aka Shock to the System) is this left-trending slab route with engaging moves on quality rock that leads to shared anchors with Electric Blue and Blue Diamond. A fun route that's good on those warm days as well as being a nice place to escape the scene at Echo Rock.


4 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")

Fun route 2 of 5 stars. 5.8 seems sandbag to me, but i'm old and falling apart.

Very good route, with some swing potential.

Good movement. The traversing nature lends a slightly insecure feeling to the climb - making it feel a little harder than it probably is. I give it a 5.9+ or so. Nice rock.

Good quality rock and well protected where you need it. Big convenient anchors up top.

Shady local.

Unless I totally missed it, the anchors are much farther left (15 ft.) from where they are in the beta pic above.

Great climb - definitely got my heart pounding a few times on lead.

The anchors are shown incorrectly in the beta photo - they're much further left and are shared with Electric Blue (see that route's beta photo).

Fun, harder than 5.9.

Good route, though the business area is short, it is on good rock. We did not know what the climb was or what it was rated when doing it. I slapped it with a 5.7 rating and was later convinced to drag that up a bit, but it is certainly no harder than 5.8. Nice area back there.

A previously unreported Gaines route called Incandescent (5.8)....it's a good route and very good white rock.

Fun little route. Trust those smears crossing below the bolt at the crux.
