DescriptionClimb a flake until it is possible to traverse left onto an obvious ramp. Make sure to sling long anything you set behind the flake, and be aware that the whole flake sounds hollow. Since the crux seemed to come while moving onto the ramp and the pro is a bit questionable for that, I felt it earns a mild PG-13 rating. The holds are huge, so it's probably easier to just plan not to fall. From there, climb a hand crack, passing the odd cobble, to the belay below a huge boulder. An obvious crack on the boulder provides a belay and potential second pitch.
LocationFollow the approach instructions from Trip Master Monkey. Alternately, find the arete on Dirty Pictures From the Prom, and aim for that. It is just right of an obvious cracked, egg shaped boulder, which is the boulder mentioned in the description. The top of Blaster Junior is the start of Dirty Pictures From the Prom. Walk off via a gully to the right.
