Access & maintenance of pathways & cleanliness at the crag

Improvement and maintenance of access to crags, clearing pathways and general cleanliness of the natural environment of popular crags is an issue which the MRCC regards as being of high priority and to which it dedicates substantial efforts. There is nothing worse than heading out to our favourite climbing areas for some recreation and finding the place littered with other people's rubbish, trees broken and burnt and rubble walls damaged and dropped. It is important that every climber makes a personal commitment to respect and improve the environment which provides us with such a rich experience. To do this, everyone should keep to established footpaths, avoid fires at all costs, and take all their own rubbish out with them...and possible carry out a little more too, on a regular basis.

The MRCC is actively engaged in improving access through the maintenance of footpaths, clearing away brambles and other obstructions, installation of access ladders and steps where needed, cleanups of valleys and crags and lobbying the authorities to support these efforts with signage and fencing to discourage further vandalism and dumping.
