Description

Blimp is the arete right of The Book. The start of this route is kind of a pain with slippery foot holds and some loose rock. Don't blow it clipping the second bolt. If you do fall while clipping the second bolt it could very well be a ground fall and a twisted ankle due to the not-so-flat-landing, plan accordingly. The second half of the route is still challenging but offers some more solid rock and foot placements with some interesting moves and some exciting exposure.

Protection

The route has four bolts plus a two bolt anchor. If you're worried about falling at the second bolt then bring a stick clip or crash pad.
