DescriptionListed as the "Nab Project" on (pg. 42) of the Grayson Highlands Bouldering Guidebook.
This fun and long standing Thews Boulder project was finally done on June 21st 2014. Located in the middle of the long blank face to the left of "Thews" (V6).
As the sound of the name suggests, High Jump consists of smearing a foot on any ripple you can find and launching up to a thin crimp/pinch combo at about 8-9ft off the ground. Stacking pads up to where you no longer have to jump is not the problem. no cheating!
The thin, flat, single-pad right hand crimp is along a slanted rail. Next to it (left hand hold) is a diagonal crimp/pinch with a thumb-catch at the bottom. Time your jump to hit both simultaneously.
Latch the first holds and dyno/campus out from under the short roof to the pinches at the lip. Trend slightly left, matching along the left pinch feature to heel-hook over the lip, and gain the higher vertical, right facing crimp/gaston to aid in the mantle.
Top this out direct!
