The Zawn (Right)

General

Cape Collinson’s The Zawn has a sheltered pebble beach with easy access for swimming, and good climbing on aretes, walls and slabs. Scramble down past the lower bunker almost to sea level and locate a series of metal hand rungs to your right on the cliff edge. Use these to descend to a ledge that allows an easy scramble around to the zawn itself and onto the pebble beach.
