Guides and National Mountaineering Associations

www.bmg.org.uk - British Mountain Guides

www.ivbv.info - International Federation of Mountain Guides Association

www.thebmc.co.uk - The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) is the representative body that exists to protect the freedoms and promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers, including ski-mountaineers. The BMC recognises that climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions. Robin Beadle Mountain Guide endorses this BMC Participation Statement. With BMC membership you can obtain mountaineering insurance and an alpine hut discount card.

Equipment Hire

I can often lend or hire any specialist items of personal kit that you might not own yourself. (Please refer to the appropriate download for a full kit list.) Items that I cannot provide can be hired from gear shops locally, and this option is particularly recommended for boots, which can be exchanged if you find they don’t fit! If you want to hire equipment before you travel there is a comprehensive selection available from:

outdoorhire-equipment-hire-specialists www.outdoorhire.co.uk - Outdoor Hire is your first stop for all your outdoor clothing and equipment needs. Visit our website to appreciate the full range of kit we hire. Call or e-mail us to discuss your specific needs.
