Read our members’ handbook: now free online

Posted by Alex Messenger on 05/06/2020

We’ve just published our 2020 BMC members’ handbook online. You can read it for free through our app or in a browser. Find out all the details.

Each year, we publish the BMC members’ handbook. This is packed full of stories, essential skills, event and information, bringing the varied work of the BMC to life.

The 2020 edition is a little late, as we had to re-write a lot of it due to Coronavirus, but we’re pleased to say that it’s now out and looking great. 

To celebrate and promote the diversity of our work, this issue is free to view in a browser or download using the Summit app - you won't need your membership number.

Have a read, and share the link to spread our message.

As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.

From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.

You say that "this issue is free to download - you won't need your membership number", however when the handbook is viewed in a browser (Firefox) there doesn't seem to be the YUDU download icon (a page with a downward pointing arrow) to download it ?
