Climb the short arete. It is basically a boulder problem variation start to either climb 20 or 21. Fun moves!


The arete between the un-named 5.9 crack (climb 20) and Berserker.

I'd climbed a line (on lead, but with basically no pro) like this (just right of #20) a few years back, but I'll admit I maybe traversed in a bit too high for it to count, not worthy of any credit.

As I was digging through the old stuff on the webs, it occurs that this might be a '97 Takeda-Laeser-Torres-Fitzgibbon climb "Jump Chump" (not sure if TR or lead)- this seems like one section of cliff at ONP that fits for it.
12/26-30/97 New Routes at the Old New Place, New New Place
First ascent teams including Theo Takeda, Luke Laeser, Carlo Torres, and Scott Fitzgibbon finished 4 new routes at the Old New and New New Places over the Christmas holiday. The first and best, "Momentum" *** 5.12a climbs the smooth, overhung face just right of "God Route" (on the far left side of the crag). On the other end of the cliff, "Half Nelson" ** 5.10d scales a short double overhang. And in the middle of all this, a variation up a smooth grey slab called "Jump Chump" * 5.11+.
