Short Fuse is a quintessential Vedauwoo route. It is really short but totally in your face and harder/more awkward than you would expect. It is a splitter, rattly finger crack with an inexplicably awkward topout.


This route is located almost directly opposite of Stress Fracture on the trail side and to the left of "Blind People Have the Hummin Jones" - another great route.


0.5-0.75" gear. You will need gear for an anchor at the top. I forget what it is. It has been a while, but your belayer can throw the gear to you from the ground.
