Description 

The route actually begins in the obvious undercling flake to the right of the first bolt. I suggest clipping the first bolt from directly below it before getting onto the flake. Make strenuous moves traversing directly left past the bolt, then follow four more bolts around the arete and up the steep face to an anchor on the right.


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 

5 bolts to a LO anchor
