British Mountaineering Council

We’re delighted to be the recommended retailer of the BMC. As the UK’s largest retailer of climbing kit, we provide BMC members with the best gear to pursue their passion. As well as offering members a 15% discount in-store and online, we also support their access and conservation work. Along with Snow+Rock, we have recently extended our support even further to sponsor the BMC’s Mend our Mountains : Make One Million campaign.


You may be familiar with the first Mend Our Mountains campaign which raised over £100,000 to help repair some of our most well used pathways. This time the BMC are setting their sights even higher, aiming to Make One Million. The funds raised will support a variety of regeneration projects across the UK’s 15 national parks.
