Welcome

Help us to ‘Mend Our Mountains’ through our new crowdfunding campaign. We are aiming to raise at least £100,000 for environmental projects on some of Britain’s most iconic peaks. Get ready to donate when the campaign launches on 14 March.

We’re delighted that Berghaus has agreed to sponsor the GB Climbing Team, and we look forward to working with such a renowned British brand to promote the team’s world class ambitions and performances.

It’s all happening in Sheffield this weekend, and that includes #SMASH, the BMC party in memory of John Ellison and Ben Winston. Get your discounted party ticket online using the special code for BMC members: BMCShAFF2016
