Easy climbing up onto a ledge leads to a right-leaning juggy rail. Above the rail, a 6' high overhanging block marks the finish (and crux) of the route. Good jamming technique will make things significantly easier than liebacking through this section. A final tenuous friction move over the bulge lands you at the bolts.

Touted as the "Angel Rock testpiece" in the AAC guide; I didn't find it nearly as "pumpy" as the name suggests.


The main east face of Pump Master Rock. The route can easily be identified by the overhanging block up top.


2 bolt (3/8") TR anchor.

Significantly easier then teenage wasteland. I thought the rail on the traverse was more micro crimps and pinches then jugs but you have bomber feet. Would be a heady lead.
