A slope jump is a jump done against a slanted wall or while walking up sloped ground which is used to gain more height than would be possible with a regular jump. The effect is amplified underwater.


Name Origin

The term "ghetto jump" was first used by kip on 9 February 2003 when he described that "a series of super ghetto jumps" could be used to climb Cargo Freight Lift to Deck Gamma in the crashed frigate without the aid of the Gravity Suit. Much later, many members of the community gravitated towards calling the trick "slope jump," as it more accurately describes the trick.
