Description 

Start just 10' feet right of the start of Torch (the bolted corner/roof), and climb diagonally right up the easy corner/ramp to the thin, overhanging crack on the left wall. Excellent and difficult jamming lead up the enjoyable set of finger and hand cracks to a tree anchor.

Rope anchor probably needs replacing if it hasn't been since '99.

Location 

The Attitash Crag has a few distinct and somewhat separate sections:

- Lowest on the hillside, and to the left as you face the cliff, is the low-angle slab where Seasonal View, Three Gems and several other good pitches are found. This slab is bordered on its right (uphill) end by a bulging buttress with a steep, bolted arete (The Spinach Arete).

- Around to the right from here you pass a broken section of cliff before you arrive beneath a short, low-angle slab leading to a vertical wall with a right facing flake running up its center. This is The Flying Jib.

- 50' right of the Jib is a steep buttress jutting out from the main wall; The Torch Buttress. The front face of this formation holds two short pitches: one is still an open project, as far as I know, and the other a bolted corner/arete/roof pitch, Torch.

- 25' right of Torch, on the overhanging wall extending back right from the front face of the Torch Buttress, is the crack line of Short Fuse.

Protection 

Light rack up to a big hand-sized piece. Tree anchor.
