left of nain, not in the new guidebook as too late for inclusion, the name Zimba is painted on the rock at the base of the climb, but is in fact named Cariad

A great left and right hand hold below the first bolt. Great little problem after the first bolt keeping to the left side. Quite a lot of rope drag from the lower off on the rock at top. Great rock formations.

Nice warm up, loose bolts have been tightened. Not sure why someone has actually written Zimba at the start though: its obvious enough without spoiling the crag...

Any loose bolt issues sorted but whoever painted 'zimba' on the crag, please stop ruining things. Take some paper and a crayon next time you want to doodle…

The New First Bolt was loose... Tightened up, but check before climbing, Not convinced on the rounded hangars that have been used on this climb, one lower off hangar also loose, didnt manage to tighten this up with anything other than by hand.

Quite an odd route. After I did it, when someone else was climbing, the first bolt hanger popped off. Luckily the climber was past the third bolt at this point and had not fallen. Don't climb until someone checks the bolts!
