Welcome

Our new guide to Occupiers' Liability will help both landowners and climbers to understand the legislation which affects landowners and occupiers, and the real rather than perceived risks associated with rock climbing.

GB Bouldering's Shauna Coxsey has recently put together a string of superb results, to sit second in the IFSC Bouldering World Cup; she'll be hard to beat at next month's British Bouldering Championships.
