Allow climbing

Mountaineering is lower risk than more mainstream sports, contrary to belief. It is an activity far easier to distance yourself from others than running around a city park. Who better to socially distance than those on the fringes of society anyway?

Why the contribution is important

Mental wellbeing even more than physical. Levels of stress, exasperation and dispondence are riplling high throughout the outdoor community. These feelings are most acute for mountaineers currently dwelling in cities.

    Access to the hills gives greater social distancing than being at home! This will be a major addition to quality of life for those of us whose sanity has long relied on time away from people, and out in the hills.
