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.
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.

If you have gone to Master Blaster or walked past the area, then you have probably seen it and thought that it was a cool looking line. From the main trail going to Lichen Lung area or Valley Massif, look right immediately after getting out of the woods (Aspens), and you should see i...[more] Browse More Classics in WY
