A stunning sweep of immaculate granite in a phenomenal setting and with climbing to do it justice. The routes on the open seaward end are all great classics with committing and exposed climbing including an exciting an novel approach. Around the corner in the depths of the zwn itself are a couple more fine climbs in a much more enclosed setting.
