Southern Sandstone Open Meeting - Sunday 8th October 2017, 6pm

The next Sandstone Open Meeting will take place at the bar at Bowles Rocks from 6pm on Sunday 8th October 2017 with a buffet provided by the BMC. The format of these meetings has changed and they now last an hour (this one may be slightly longer depending on discussions) with an update on what’s going on at the various crags followed by a discussion / Q and A session.

This meeting is particularly important as there will be a discussion about access to the Isolated Buttress at Harrison’s Rocks and all views will be taken into consideration. A decision will be made by the BMC's Harrison's Rocks Management Group (HRMG) throughout the following week. This follows a two 'trial' years since the step-across to the buttress was demolished for safety reasons. If you have a view then please try and attend the meeting.

If however, you cannot attend, the HRMG are still keen to take your view into account, so please submit your thoughts to the HRMG chair – Sarah Cullen - sarah@nuts4climbing.com
