Ever wondered whether a particular crag is still bird banned, or how the new CRoW act has affected your local bouldering venue? Then check out the BMC´s all singing, all dancing Regional Access Database. The RAD has been in existence for a good few years, but has recently been re-vamped and moved to a dedicated website all of its own: http://www.climbingcrags.co.uk. This move will be in effect only until the new BMC site is finished at which point it will be moved back to the regular BMC site. If you are not sure what the RAD is: it´s basically the most up to date and informative resource on UK crag access issues. Note that the new database is brand new. Despite having been thoroughly tested it may well contain the odd bug so please let guy@thebmc.co.uk know if you find one. ———————————————————————– If you have any news worth reporting please contact Matt – matt@planetfear.com / 0114 2969114 ———————————————————————–
