Advice for Parents about climbing and young people

Here at the Gearshack we are interested in promoting climbing for young people - we are after all associated with the UK's largest independent outdoor company, TrekCo (see www.trekco.com )

The British Mountaineering Council have produced a great leaflet explaining the benefits and the risks of these activities for young children. A great introductory guide for those parents unsure about what is involved – this could help reassure parents of young potential participants.
The leaflet can be ordered or there is a free download. Please see: https://www.thebmc.co.uk/a-parents-guide-to-climbing-walking-and-mountaineering?s=2
