Important BMC Climbing News

Peak Area Newsletter

The Peak Area is the latest BMC Area to produce a newsletter, to keep you informed about what's going on in the region. You can download it here.

Not far behind is the Lakes.

Lakes Area Newsletter

Newsletter number two is now available from the Lakes team and in it you will find details of the March '08 area meeting (5th March at the Staveley Beer Hall), the Lakes Festival of Climbing, access updates and "tons of other stuff". Download the newsletter here

Another amazing effort from the Black Pudding team. You want a party? That's in it. You want to clean up a crag that's better than Millstone? That's in it. You want to find out about where to get free chips and cake? That's in it. Download the newsletter here

Bird Restrictions 2008

The UK's birds will be scouting around for nest sites and raising their young. Please play your part towards conserving our feathery friends and stick to the BMC's agreed nesting restrictions.

The UK is widely recognised for the international importance of its wintering, migratory and nesting bird populations and the BMC's longstanding relations with the conservation bodies has ensured the restrictions are as minimal as possible.

Keep an eye out for the 2008 restrictions poster at your local climbing wall and you can download it here

A team of climbers from Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Centre, will be installing cameras today (22 February) on the cliff face at RSPB South Stack Nature Reserve, Anglesey, to give visitors close-up views of nesting birds. Read the detailed report here
