Covid-19 Update - 11th May 2020

In response to last night's confusing Prime Minister's update, the BMC will be reviewing the government's plan document in more detail when it is released later today (Monday 11th May 2020). Climbers have understandably been keen to know if this new announcement means that climbing can resume, but at this time please note that the BMC's advice is still in force and climbing is still currently suspended at all Southern Sandstone crags and all facilities remain closed at this time. 

We will keep you up-to date if anything changes and keep an eye on our COVID-19 page here.

A strategy concerning how Southern Sandstone crags will reopen in the future is currently in development, but please do not expect any overnight changes and note the BMC's advice at all times.

The full BMC article can be read on the BMC Website.
