Unique Christmas Gift – Joe Brown / Ron Fawcett / Eric Jones signed print

We relaunched the BMC Access & Conservation Trust this year and Phil Gibson has done a superb limited edition line drawing of Craig Bwlch y Moch, Tremadog to help raise funds for the Trust. There are fewer than 50 prints remaining at a special pre-Christmas discount price. Each print is individually hand-signed by all three climbing legends. I’ve even bought one myself (at full price – no staff discount before you ask) and it looks great above the mantelpiece.

Season’s Greetings,
