The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) has revealed that it's membership numbers have reached an all-time high.

December 2009 saw BMC membership figures reach 70,000, representing many of the people who like to use facilities such as climbing walls and use a climbing rope to scale cliffs and crags.

Chief executive David Turnbull said: "It's great to see our membership in such good shape and continuing to grow."

The body noted that funds raised by subscriptions - which amount to 50 per cent of income - helps in its work, which includes securing access to climbing sites.

People keen to do some more outdoor pursuits may wish to pop into their nearest Go Outdoors store to buy some climbing equipment.

BMC membership also helps raise funds indirectly as only those who join can take out its travel insurance.

According to the winter edition of members' magazine Summit, these policies account for 25 per cent of its income.
