BMC vacancy - IT & Database Support Engineer, Recruitment Premier Post, 3 weeks at £75pw Rob Adie is the BMC Climbing Walls and Competitions Officer and he is going live on the UKC Forums tomorrow! That's Friday the third of September.

He introduces himself on the BMC Website:

"I provide advice about climbing wall related issues and am responsible for organising all the BMC's climbing competitions. I sit on the climbing wall and competition committees. I offer climbing wall managers and developers advice and information, making sure climbing walls are run with the interests of its users as a priority. I also organise the BLCC, the BBC, the BMC Leading Ladder and help run the British Climbing Team. I previously worked for Entre-Prises Climbing Walls as a designer. I try and claim to be a hardcore ice climber, but can sometimes be found greasing off sloping holds in the peak."

There is a huge competition coming up at Ratho next weekend - the IFSC World Youth Championships. Rob Adie will be there. If you have any questions about this competition or anything competition or climbing wall related - ask Rob!

Rob will be live on the forums from 9am tomorrow - post any questions in the thread linked at the base of this news item.

Bloody hell! I saw that top photo and thought someone was taking photos of me, I really hope that Rob Adie hasn't got ginger hair like me otherwise I've got a serious doppelgänger. He even has the same helmet and the an identical looking coat.

EICA Ratho are saying that next weeks comp will bring in around £1m into the local area from the climbers and other visitors. Do you think these comp really bring in that much money to local economies? Thanks in advance. SDB

Like you say there are so many different types of self locking belay devices to choose from, and they all have their pros and cons. The thing to remember with using this sort of device is that they are not idiot proof and most of the accidents I have witnessed at walls have involved one. You must always keep your hand on the dead end of the rope when paying out rope. I see so much bad use of gri-gri's especially, people just do not know how to use them properly. Check this video out from petzl - http://www.petzl.com/en/outdoor/petzl-tv/videos/products-techniques This is the safest way to use a gri gri and should be used by everyone.
