DescriptionThis 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 ThereYou 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.
