Master Blaster climbs the black streak out the center of the main wall.
It starts out with a techy boulder problem on crimps to reach the jugs at the first bolt. From there, embark on a sweet, crimpy hard boulder problem ending at the third bolt. Catch a quick rest, and prepare for more awesome, strenuous crimping to the anchors. Join up with the last 2 bolts & anchor of ______? (the route that starts 20 feet left of this & climbs the last 20 feet of the black streak).
As for the grade, who cares, it's 5th class for sure, & the hardest I have established. "Who run Bartertown?" "Masterblaster runs Bartertown!"
This ascends the obvious black streak on the main wall.

First thing I saw when I walked up to the crag! Soo beautiful! Bring a stick clip. The fall between 2nd and 3rd clip is terrifying, but the moves are so hard that I couldn't put third bolt any lower, all the clips are easy though. What a great area, I really love the route to the left of this, too.
Erik Durgin did the second ascent!
I am going to get up there as soon as possible and fix 4th bolt.

Had to hand drill that last bolt. It took an hour an a half... this stone is hard as hell.

Amazing route on perfect rock! Definitely worth the drive up from DGO. Don't let the grade or the R rating scare you as it is neither. GET ON THAT SHIT!

Hopped on this route, it is awesome, can't wait to return and try for the redpoint. I think I'll have to return in the spring though. Getting a little icey up there.

Botched bolt job. Washers between the hangers and rock (WTF?!), one bolt sticking out 1/2", another bolt 2' from route to the left. Anyone gonna fix the mess?
