Routes in Jump Chump Clump

Description

This oblong-shaped blob of rock is about 50' east of the Black Velvet Boulder and features a couple of unique problems on it's south face - Yawning Flare (V3) a classic JT grovelfest and Jump Chump (V5) a novel run and jump problem.

Getting There

Hike west past the western-most picnic table and then head south skirting the rocks on your left. Spot the Black Velvet Boulder with it's distinctive black face and then head east 50' to the next clump of rocks where you'll find two problems on the south face. Plan on 5-10 minutes from the car depending upon where you've parked.

Craig Fry's book calls it B1, as does Vogel's 92 guide. May 5, 2016

The Jump Chump is also rated J1, meaning it is at the low end of grading the run and jump problems. Other J1 problems include the BasketBall Jump which is much harder now the ground has eroded. The running version of Streetcar Named Desire and Cashbox, another jump problem over by the Caveman, are both J1+. The ever unpopular Caesars Palace is J2, as is Mediterranean Sundance. I don't know if there are any J3 problems. Dec 10, 2007
