This crag sits between Walt's Wall and Hassler's Hatbox. It is not an isolated crag, more like a steep section in the buttress in front of Hassler's Hatbox. Most routes face south and are pretty short. Here you will find the often photographed "Trip Master Monkey" (inverted foot jam!) as well as the classic "Master Blaster" route.
You can approach this crag by first climbing Walt's Wall (i.e. Edward's Crack). Or, to approach directly take the Turtle Rock Trail a few hundred yards (out of the first Aspen grove) and wander up ledges and headwalls to your right. It's a complex area, and it helps to know where you're heading. Check out guide book photos to identify this (you can see Master Blaster from the Turtle Rock Trail if you know where to look). If you know where you're going the approach takes less than 15 minutes.

Trip Master Monkey 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ E6 6b WY : Vedauwoo : Master Blaster
Stiff and wild, this climb makes the gymnastics associated with sport climbing seem like oversprayed hype. This climb defines Vedauwoo in a way; beautiful, creative, and out of this world. A must do for visiting hardpeople. Open your mind and puzzle your way up this beautiful and crazy overhanging monstrosity. Like nothing else out there. Intellectually stimulating sequence.
