The BMC is committed to removing barriers to participation that people from under-represented groups might face when wanting to take part in climbing, hill walking or mountaineering. This series of video clips is part of that process.

So just what is climbing?  Well, watch these short video clips and you'll understand what it is and what the attractions are.

Featured in these videos are the two Siddiqui brothers who, besides being Asian, are well known climbers.  In fact, Rehan in now a BMC Vice President.  

These clips show that climbing is open and welcoming to all people and that people from underrepresented communities, such as our Asian communities can, and do, take part in these activities and enjoy them.

Secondly, they give practical support and advice to those who may wish to consider taking part in these activities.
