The BMC North East Area Meeting will be held at Durham Climbing Centre on Thursday 16 February 2017, starting at 7.00pm.

Come along to our next gathering of climbers and walkers in the North East, to discuss the latest issues and get involved in the work of the BMC

BMC area meetings are run by volunteers and are your chance to join in with debate and influence decisions about what happens in your area as well as the rest of the country.

Guest speaker for the evening is Franco Cookson
For anyone who doesn’t know who Franco is, in addition to being a BMC access rep, he: 
- Occasionally appears in climbing magazines without a t-shirt;
- Has been known to crash the climbing internet world with his views of the UK grading system, attempts at flying and his inability to make his nuts small enough for Psykovsky's Sequins;
- Has relentlessly beaten the drum to promote his beloved North York Moors through first ascents of stellar lines such as The Hypocrisy of Moose at Danby and Seaside Slab at Stoupe Brow;
- Oh, and occasionally he climbs something a bit trickier than most.

All are welcome; food will be provided.

Durham Climbing Centre is hosting the meeting, so why not get there early and fit in a climbing session too?
