The West Face
| E5 6b|
<< Deja Vu < The Dream/Liberator | Xanadu > Desolation Row >>
The central line of cracks and overhangs gives a stunning line and a powerful, difficult trip up the Great Zawn's most impressive wall. Start on boulders below a corner-crack in the centre of the face..
1) 5c, 20m. Move up the wall and pull through the overhang into the corner-crack. Climb the crack to an overhang and move up right to a stance and belay below the main overhangs..
2) 6b, 23m. Move left to a smooth-walled groove. Climb the difficult groove, peg, to the overhangs and follow the cracks and corners strenuously up through the stepped overhangs to a belay above the difficulties..
3) 12m. Straightforward ground leads to the top. Not in current guidebook.
