The BMC Women in Adventure Film Competition is back for a second year. Watch the entries on BMC TV, and if you’ve got a favourite make sure you share it.

As a special tribute to CAC founder John Ellison, we’ve just launched the Climbers With Cancer grant scheme, to help five climbers and walkers achieve a personal goal or project.

…and if you happen to be in South Wales this Saturday why not join our local team for a wild walk up Pen y Fan – and tell us what you think of our work for walkers in the pub afterwards.
