What is considered a ‘group’ whilst out on the crags or in the hills? Instructed groups and university club meets might be what immediately spring to mind, but in reality many climbers and walkers frequently spend their time in what could be seen as a group by other users.
Groups of all types play a crucial part in British climbing and walking, often being the way many of us started out and frequently providing a way to meet like-minded individuals as a more experienced climber or walker through clubs. These two new guidance booklets aim to provide useful and practical advice to groups of climbers and walkers on how to minimise their impact on the crags, hills and other users whilst enjoying these incredible places.
