A fine and relatively friendly introduction to the delights of the Great Zawn, having plenty of atmosphere and outstanding climbing on its first pitch. Start right of the abseil approach at a narrow corner/groove that leads to a thin crackline in the smooth wall.
1) 5a, 32m. Climb to, and then up the difficult corner/groove to better holds in the crack. Ascend the crack to a move right into a small corner, and climb past a horizontal break to a stance.
2) 4b, 25m. Head up right to below a steep corner and climb this to finish on easier ground. Some loose blocks. © Rockfax
