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

Description 

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!)

Decorator Crab 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : San Francisco Bay : ... : The Shock Block
Clip the 1st bolt from the ledge, then step off and right with insta-exposure! Crank up the large holds on alternating vertical and steep terrain till the final slab before the anchors. Classic! There is a 4 bolt Direct Start which starts on a lower tier of rock and goes up a nice dihedral (12 bolts - MUST use a 60M!)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
