*Climbing & Walking – Latest UK Guidelines*
Organisations linked to climbing and hillwalking, including the BMC, the UK’s national representative body for hillwalkers and climbers, have released further guidance on hillwalking and climbing following the government’s announcement of changes to exercise rules. We encourage anyone considering going outdoors for hillwalking, climbing, mountaineering, bouldering or any hill or mountain-based activity to read these carefully.
Looking at the bigger picture helps us to make informed choices; this enables us to care for each other through good decision-making. Going out still poses potential risks to Mountain Rescue and the NHS. There is also significant risk of issues with future crag access, if guidelines are not followed. For these reasons, careful planning and consideration is called for. We want to do our best to make good choices for our future selves.
Please remember: Rules for Wales, Scotland & England are different. Be sure to check the relevant guidance.
