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.

We want to say a big thanks to every BMC member who continues to support us through the Coronavirus crisis.

From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t do it without you.

Did you know that we've just launched a new U27 membership offer for just £1.50 / month? And with full membership from £2.50 / month, it's never been easier to join and support our work:
