Yorkshire Area Meeting: 24 February
Come to our next (virtual) gathering of Yorkshire climbers and walkers and get involved in the BMC.
The next Yorkshire Area Meeting will be on Wednesday 24 February 2021, starting at 7.30pm, and will be an online meeting held via Zoom, with registration for the meeting via Eventbrite.
Area meetings are run by volunteers and provide an opportunity for you to discuss issues and influence decisions affecting climbers and walkers locally and nationally. All are welcome.
Guest speaker: Jase Wilson
In his talk ‘Tourism in the Death Zone’, Jase, a Leeds-based Canadian writer, photographer and academic will share his stories of exploration and efforts to reveal the seemingly mystical ‘world’ of high-altitude tourism in the Himalaya and Karakoram as part of his PhD research into the same topic.
See the BMC Local Areas site for more details about the meeting
