    Not So Trad Southern LGBT Climbers in Malta!

    Not only did they enjoy a great week of climbing both trad and sport routes around the islands (with a little sea level traversing thrown in for good measure), on their last night they had a whip around and left a generous donation towards the MRCC Bolting Project.
