The start is the crux.
Starts 10 m right of Wake And Bake
Three bolts plus four threads & anchors.

If you can touch the first hold at all, you likely will find the subsequent steep climbing more difficult than the start. At 5'9", white, overweight and unable to touch a basketball net, I could latch the jug. I found the climbing above to be pumpy and nice; only the back-scratching tree branches detract from the quality.
It should be noted that this route is probably more like 12 meters right of Wake & Bake (the first route right of W&B is By Way of Deception, another nice route with a strange, bouldery start). Jumping for Jugs is identified by the body-sized hueco hanging from a roof about 7 feet up. This area is nicely shaded for those of us who stayed up too late at Sawadee Bar.
Cheater stone = A0. But it is the beach, so who cares?
