Check crag access info on the go with the BMC's new Regional Access Database (RAD) app.
The BMC Regional Access Database – or RAD as it’s more snappily known – is the source of the most up to date access advice for climbers in England and Wales. From bird restrictions and parking advice to sensitive approaches and advice on local ethics, this is the place to go to find out whether you can climb on a crag and just how to approach it.
You can search for crags (or just let your phone show you nearby crags), report an access problem and mark crags as favourites for quick access updates on your phone.
BMC Access and Conservation Officer Rob Dyer said:“The whole BMC access team is excited about the new app. We’ve been working on it over the last year and it's a great leap forward for BMC access information. I installed the Android app and it’s certainly made my life easier. Give the RAD app a try!”
Available now for Android and iOS, it's free and comes with a host of new features like navigation and parking, weather and tidal updates, and of course information on restrictions or notes on access advice.
