Start on top of a boulder at the base of the rock and pull on to the face- clipping 4 bolts along the way to a long ledge with trees and a bolted anchor for a belay/rap. This route is probably harder for shorter people, but not obscenely so.


Just left of Roadside Attraction, a large boulder sits almost against the rock and just below a line of bolts, which is Jump For Joy.


4 clips to an anchor.

It's harder if you go straight up (but just to the right) at the 4th bolt. A lot of people cheat left to "easier" ground, but you're risking a pendulum fall and it is very hard to clip the bolt making for an even greater fall potential.

I have not climbed this route in a long time, but last time I did it, it needed new anchors.

The start is stellar and the diversity of jugs and blank wall in the middle make it exciting, and I feel, revealing of three stars.

Good pockets. The boulder created a huge decking problem if your belay is wandering or a lot lighter than you.
around the fourth bolt the pockets start to disappear
