Here the BMC introduce their new video:
"In 2012 the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) launched a Helmet Campaign. The aim of this campaign is to raise awareness amongst climbers and mountaineers about climbing helmets, and to help them decide when to wear one or not.
In this video we interview climbers at Stanage Edge, England's most popular crag, to find out about their attitudes to wearing helmets, and we discuss the different kinds of helmet on offer. We ask climber Neil Bentley about why he chose to wear a helmet on the first ascent of Equilibrium, the UK's first E10, and find out how a serious head injury affected his life, after an accident on the Marmolada in the Dolomites."
