Gull Zawn Guernsey, CHANNEL ISLANDS
Climbs 68 – Rocktype Gneiss – Altitude ? – Faces SW
A superb atmospheric venue of fine-textured solid blue Perelle Gneiss with some excellent climbs. Highly recommended.
Most routes are partially or fully non-tidal.
Many routes have the odd Piton for protection which have been in place since before 1996 and are deemed untrustworthy. If you wish to do a route with piton protection the crag moderator has some pegs and a hammer.

Care needed on approach while traversing above the back of the zawn, the easiest way down to sea level is via the western side and Zawn entrance. Fishermen have placed a rope on the descent scramble in spring 2013. Park in the gravel carpark by the large German tower on the side of the cliff above the Zawn. The turn-off to this carpark is not marked on many maps, but there are some flat concrete slabs occasionally covered by piles of hardcore next to the turnoff. 10 minute walk and scramble in. No bird restrictions, but seagulls nest above the climbs and on the scramble down. The big storms of 2013/14 have moved the boulders round in the bottom of the zawn, but climbs do not appear to have been affected. Helmets strongly recommended in case a member of the public throws a stone down into the zawn!
