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.
