How to book tickets

It’s a three-stage process to book tickets. You can do the first two stages now!

  1. Look at the lists of Masterclasses by High-profile LGBTQ+ Climbers and the list Climbing Courses and Workshops. Each session runs for a full day minimum. Decide which you’d like to come to!
  2. Registration is through the BMC Webform system. You’ll need to log in or create a BMC Webforms account.
  3. Complete a registration form to book and pay

You’ll need your BMC membership number to book at the discounted rate. We sent this number in an email at noon today (Fri 10th March) – but just contact us on if you need any help.

Please don’t be afraid to grab us and ask any questions or email the team at ClimbOut.

Looking forward to seeing some of you there!!
