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.

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