Good foot placement is the key for the Block move. Foot completely flat and the knee up off of the rock.

Or if you're tall and awkward like me you can just scum your entire upper body onto the block as you roll up onto it. A shirt is recommended. The move is not.

But really though, this is a fun move. I'm surprised the climber in the picture didn't put any pro in under the block-but I guess he is getting his stone mountain head game on. Feb 2, 2016
I did this for the first time back in November. First time leading on trad, I was relieved to reach the block after some long runout. I got spooked at the move even though I had great protection placed. Getting lowered, I traversed to the gully on the left when the rope ran out and had my partner finish up the route. Following on TR, the move is a breeze. It's a head game trusting your foot up on the block. Just do it. Feb 3, 2016
