The Club currently organises the following activities during its meets:
- Backpacking and Wild Camping
- Climbing (Single Pitch Rock and Indoor) and Abseiling
- Hill Walking and Rock Scrambling
- Mountain Biking
- Via Ferrata
All activities are led by Club Leaders who have the necessary qualifications and experience to lead these activities. More details on each activity, including the Club's Risk Assessments for these activities, can be obtained by selecting the appropriate menu link in the sidebar opposite.
The BBMC has produced generic risk assessments to which we attach site specific risk assessments, as and when required. New locations or activities being used are routinely visited prior to use and assessed for risk. The club’s risk assessments follow the recognised five step process as recommended by the Adventurous Activities Industry Advisory Committee and HSE. Risk assessments for specific activities can be found on the appropriate Activity web page (from the sidebar menu on the left) and an overview of the risk assessment system and a generic risk assessment for residential meets can be found below.
We also have devised, during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, some online activities, which we describe as Virtual Mountaineering. These activities can be done at home or anywhere else. You can learn more about the mountains of Britain and even go for a virtual walk on them without leaving your chair. We will keep these on the website so that anyone who cannot get to the mountains, for whatever reason, can enjoy the mountains at a distance.
