When dry, the thin crack in the upper slab of Black Zawn's right wall is a must. Climb to the smooth corner left of the slab (as for Slippery Chute). Place a high runner in the smooth corner and then descend to a point level with an open groove at the base of the slab. Make a perplexing step right across the groove to the slab and climb a tiny corner to a small ledge halfway up the slab. Finish up the still tricky crack above. © Rockfax
