Really enjoyed my first outing in the Great Zawn. Awesome route in a stunning setting. Very satisfying, technical moves. Very pleased I didn't fall off!

Top quality technical climbing all the way! Possibly one or two 5c moves, but definitely lots of 5b. Graham led it very deliberately, taking about 2 hours. I got a little cold at the bottom and was still shaking quite violently at the arete move. Warmed up a bit after that. The jungle at the top between Graham's belay and the abseil spike turned out to be harder, scarier and more unpleasant than anticipated.

First ever route in Great Zawn. Great line, looks intimidating and the starting moves are hard for 5b but after that it's steady balancy crack climbing. I thought the gear was ok for the grade, a bit small and a bit run out in places but got 16 runners in and could have had more. The scary bit was the steep jungle at the top! Great to chat with Frank Cannings before and after the route. He said he had about 5 runners on the FA! I had 5 by the time I moved out onto the arÍte... With Viktor from Sweden on the BMC international meet.

Not especially hard technically, I wouldn't have been happy with the gear though..

Wow, big day out for me. Took absolutely ages on this, placed an entire rack of 21 QDs and several cams! Agree that this is a lot like Diabaig Pillar or Comes the Dervish. Pretty pushy climbing with some decent runouts, between good rests. Plenty of gear if you look around, not much of it that good. Brilliant route :)

One of the most exciting and adventurous climbs I've ever done. After abseil in to the Great Zawn retreat would be hard work. Looking up from the depths of the Great Zawn Desolation Row looks daunting. After the start which looked slippery but wasn't the moves demand a clean focus that is just so enjoyable. Move after move of delicate balance and wondering whether there's a complication ahead. The topping out into a luxurious meadow is delightful. I just want to do it again.

Sustained but with good rests. A brilliant route with enough gear with small cams and wires. Definately worth 3 stars
