Description

The bolted line up the right hand dihedral and roof system. There is an optional small TCU placement between the first and second bolts. Face climb and stem up the corner, then pull up and right over the roof before stepping back left to the anchor.

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

4 bolts and gear to a LO anchor. A small alien or TCU is the only piece of gear you'll need, if any.

Just left of Torch is a cool little line that I put some effort into, but could never even toprope successfully. As far as I know it remains an open project and would be a proud send for a strong suitor. It climbs the pretty, thin fingercrack left of Torch, then busts out the bulge/roof when the crack ends. I think it could be done without bolts but would probably require a headpoint approach. One bolt at the crux bulge wouldn't be terrible either. I was calling it Evil Twin.
You can toprope it from the Torch anchor. Jun 6, 2009
