Two new Green Guides for groups released

Posted by Rob Dyer on 12/11/2015

What is considered a ‘group’ whilst out on the crags or in the hills? Instructed groups and university club meets might be what immediately spring to mind, but in reality many climbers and walkers frequently spend their time in what could be seen as a group by other users.

Groups of all types play a crucial part in British climbing and walking, often being the way many of us started out and frequently providing a way to meet like-minded individuals as a more experienced climber or walker through clubs. These two new guidance booklets aim to provide useful and practical advice to groups of climbers and walkers on how to minimise their impact on the crags, hills and other users whilst enjoying these incredible places.

The Access and Conservation Trust

The BMC's charity  the BMC Access & Conservation Trust  promotes sustainable access to cliffs, mountains and open countryside by facilitating education and conservation projects across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

By educating climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers to enjoy outdoor recreation while minimising their impact on the landscape, conserving the UK’s upland resources, and campaigning for improved access rights, ACT enables future generations to continue to enjoy outdoor activities and the physical, mental and social benefits they bring to individual lives and society in general.
