Description

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 Drip Drop (which was wet when we were there in March).

The second pitch is of an entirely different character. Move down and left and climb a strenuous overhanging hand crack. This crack takes big stoppers and #1-#2 size Camalots, I don't think we even placed a #3. From the top, rappel back down to the base (80 feet).

Protection

Standard rack to #3 Camalot.

This route is fun climbing, and the two pitches are remarkably different. The first is technical slabbing with tips jamming at the cruxes, while the second is overhung, burly hands. Unfortunately, combined they only add up to eighty feet. Drip Drop is worth doing if you are already at the base and want to spend 4 minutes on a weird slab. Jun 23, 2009
