DescriptionAngle up the dirty slab from the right to reach the base of the obvious flake. Clip a bolt, then pull up into the flake and follow it to two more bolts which protect the final, crux face moves.
This thing was thoroughly cleaned ten years ago; dunno what it looks like now.
LocationThe 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).
- 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.
