Idle Hands on the Shock Block at Table Rock, MSH.


The square block at the base of the large scooped out headwall. Named for the surprising quality of the routes on it. I was encouraged to "not waste my time" on this section of the cliff. Glad I did!

Getting There 

Makes up the right border of the Iron Curtain and goes down hill from there (pun intended!)
