1. Each jumper secretly chooses a height they will attempt. They can choose as high as they want, but no lower than whatever the starting height was in the first round of the competition. They're only going to get one attempt at their chosen height.

2. The heights are revealed. If the heights are different, higher height goes first. If they're equal, whoever

3. An athlete wins by:

(a) making the higher height if the heights are different, or

(b) clearing their chosen height when the other jumper missed theirs.

If both missed their attempts, or both made an equal height, go back to step 1, with each choosing a different height.

If there are 3 or more athletes in the jump-off, the same principles can be extended to them: Best made height of the group wins; the competition continues into another round only if all missed their chosen height, or 2 or more tied by clearing the same height. You could whittle the group down to two faster by eliminating the jumper with the lowest chosen height if all missed their attempts.
