Stay Classy: Responsible Outdoor Bouldering
Climbing has never been more popular and in vogue and is growing at a rapid rate.
As a business that sees thousands of climbers each day, in a ‘self-governed’ sport, we believe we have a responsibility to help any climber aspiring to take their new passion to the next level; the outdoors!
We can build countless new walls, but we can’t build new crags. So how can we ensure we collectively look after what we’ve got? We teamed up with an author, photographer and gritstone aficionado Dave Parry, to see what little behaviours we can all adopt to ensure out outdoor crags are well looked after.
