Usually shady and windy in the Pump Master rock area because of the small rock valley. Fairly secluded, although a 5 minute hike from Teenage Area. Hikers on the Angel Rocks trail rarely venture down to this area. The rock is granite.
"The rock is located by first finding Teenage Area, and the rock with a cave going under it. Follow main trail downhill past some low rocks watching on your left for the steep face of Pumpmaster with a shady grove of large birch trees. Coming from Main Rock, go up hill on the trail past serveral amorphous rocks and watch for the shady grove. Look for the wild 6 ft tall overhanding block that baps Pumpmaster." - AAC
