Great Zawn Cornwall, ENGLAND
Climbs 40 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 10m a.s.l – Faces W
A major venue for climbers above VS level, offering multi-pitch routes up to 220ft. A naturally beautiful setting in a huge zawn, remarkably close to Bosigran. In a sense, it is Cornwall's version of Huntsman's Leap (qv Pembroke) though without the tide, but much less sheltered. Classics include Desolation Row (E2 5b), Xanadu (E2 5b), Dream (E3), Liberator (E5) and the Dream-Liberator Connection (E3).

Climbs at this crag
Non-tidal but beware heavy swells.
Park at the NT car park off the B3306 (by the mine-stack ruins). Follow the path down to a junction with the coastal path: go L. Follow the coast path from the small bridge above the ruined mine buildings above Porthmoina Cove. Climb with it steeply uphill to a levelling, and then cross a stile. Pass Bosigran Ridge on the R, and on through a low boulder wall. Follow the path (sometimes overgrown with bracken) seawards down a grassy depression, to the edge of Great Zawn.
Facing out, continue along the Zawn's R edge and down the stepped grassy terrace, to reach an abseil spike. Requires 130-ft rope, to reach the steep grassy slopes of the upper Zawn.
