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.

This route has been rebolted. Very hard for the original grade of 5.10d. Jun 28, 2018
Gave it a shoot on Saturday but bailed after the third clip for a simple reason: almost every handhold wiggled a bit to much if I would trust it. One of them close to the second (?, I'm not sure anymore) bolt. However, probably still safe enough. Nov 26, 2018
