DescriptionReally good route that is inbetween Start of Something Good and New Kids on the Rock. Find the 6' tall block that SOSG starts on and just to the left of that is a line of bolts that starts up a series of ledges. The reason it's called Jump Start should be obvious. Great starter '10' at the Bluff but the taller you are the easier the crux. After you pull the crux, you can walk left up the ledge/ramp into easier climbing, which is the 10a version. Otherwise, if you clip that bolt and climb straight up without walking up the ramp to the left, it's probably 10c. That's why the guidebook gives it '10a-c'. It's a lot more fun to pull the direct version (10c).

ProtectionBolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.
You may be tempted to clip a stray bolt that is off to the right near the crux (low). This bolt is really for Jump to Somthing Good, which is a mid-11 climb that starts on Jump Start and angles into Start of Something Good. It is fine to clip it for this route, but it really doesn't add much to the protection and will set you up for some rope drag later on and although unlikely, if you fall before clipping tbe next bolt, you'll go for a bit of a ride. Recommend not clipping that one.
