New Routing in Zimbabwe

Derrick Starling and friends have been busy putting up new routes in Zimbabwe at Bulldog Crag, shumba Shaba, Matopos.   projecting a couple of them but so far grades go at SA 13, 16, 17, 20, 22, 23.  They need a few more climbs to confirm grades. We are still developing the crag at shumba Shaba and think that there are at least six more climbs to be bolted.

Below:  Photos of a project bolted by Derrick Starling – In the red tshirt is me, no shirt is Tim Kluckow and the vest is Dom Stackler. The project runs at 22/23.
