Jeez I'm terrible at the steep.

emmafizzle 18/Aug/17 Lead dnf

Decided to try a climb completely not my style since I was having such a rubbish day climbing. Bolt to bolt struggle followed by many attempts to get to 4th bolt eventually ending up inverted on the rope... so I came down and called it a day. At the very least I tried something different!?

Spent a long time getting the crux around bolt 4. Feels doable, though - will be back.

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.
