Topic - Climbing... A white Manís Game?

liam - on 05 Feb 2013
The face of British rock climbing is very much that of the white male. Within the everyday realms of rock climbing, there are very few levels of non-white (specifically Black and Asian) participation.

I know I am not the first person to notice this, and Iím sure most people can count the number of exceptions to this notion on one hand.

I am a 3rd year Sociology student currently conducting a research project to try and examine the reasons for such low levels of participation of ethnic minority groups in climbing.

What do people think? Why do you think that participation levels are so low?

At the same time I would really like to talk to anyone who climbs and considers themselves to be from an ethnic minority background; if you are interested in either a quick conversation or email exchange I would like to hear from you.

Cheers, Liam Postlethwaite
