What are the benefits of becoming a member?

Being a member of the ABC allows us great access to other wall owners and managers so we’re able to network with our peers

Rich Emerson – The Climbing Academy

Association of British Climbing Walls

Joining the ABC is the best way to ensure that your wall meets climbing wall industry best practice guidelines. ABC members get access to guidance, reports and in-depth analysis of the issues affecting our industry. There are also seminars, newsletters and a members forum to help you stay in touch with what’s going on in the world of indoor climbing.
