Topic - Good quality camera that is small enough for rock climbing?

TRip - on 17 May 2013
My current camera is a Nikon P7000. It takes really nice photos but is just too big for rock climbing. Meaning it gets left behind more often than not.

I've got a big trip to the States and Patagonia planned for later in the year and want small camera, which takes high quality images, that I can keep down my top most of the time.

Shoots Raw
Large Sensor and good lens
Wide angle lens
Small and light
Good battery life.

I can't afford an Sony RX100.

The obvious choice appears to be a Canon s110.

The other option is a Pansonic LX7. I had an LX3 in the past, but it got nicked. My slight reservations are, in a case, it is a bit too big to stuff down my top and I don't really like the lens cover. Saying that if I used it with a traditional case like this: It might solve both those problems. Plus they take brilliant pictures.

What else should I consider?
