|Donald enjoying great conditions and climbing|
Yesterday Matt and Donald took a deep walk up to Lost Valley Buttress and climbed Neanderthal VII,7***. Matt said that is was an outstanding route and in great condition. The lack of moisture has meant the first pitch is more challenging than normal, as it had a few loose blocks that needed care. Another fine effort by them both. Donald had also climbed Agag's Groove VII,6*** the day before.
