Manana* HVS 5a
[Man'ana, HVS 5a - a good choice for those seeking loose unprotected Swanage topouts, 3 kb]A worthwhile and slightly bold outing with good rock on the hardest climbing. Start below the large overhang. Climb the unprotected wall below the capping overhang to a welcome peg runner. Continue up to a groove to the right of the roof, crux, and seek the most stable line up the final wall to the top. © ROCKFAX
Climb the wall (unprotected) under the huge capping roof to a welcome peg runner. Continue up to a groove to the R of the roof (crux) and seek the most stable line to the top.

In one pitch. Naff all gear for ages, don't rely on the rusty peg! Once you get some protection in it is rather pleasant.

More gear than I expected.

All pretty straightforward stuff - took the left-hand route at the crux above the half-height stance. Better holds, but some loose rock.
