Welcome

Plas y Brenin hosted yet another successful and smoothly run BMC AGM last weekend; with the Mountain Training Trust having secured a new contract to continue its running of the National Mountain Centre, we look forward to returning in future years.

With more and more young people coming into climbing, particularly via indoor walls, we have issued some important guidance on the use of campus boards.

Happy Easter
Dave Turnbull, BMC CEO
