Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

To reach the base of this route, you can climb another route on Master Blaster (such as Blaster Junior and/or Dirty Pictures from the Prom). To scramble to the base, you need to traverse left on the appropriate ledge (photo useful).This route is normally done as two short pitches. The first pitch climbs the far left side of a slab at a right facing corner. Tricky thin gear and long reaches will put you at a bolted belay (10a). This belay can also be reached via 2 bolts on the face, the route...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
