second go. 7a seems fair. Great route, short but it makes up for it with big moves. Just got back from Slovenia, it felt easier than some of the 6as there!

Quite hard indeed - not quite a jug haul, with a severe crux

Flash, draws in. RH rather than LH chains, topo differs from description(7a) in new Swanage guide? 6c+/7a?

Tricky up and left over the roof, nice and juggy otherwise.
