Camping and Climbing

Please be very aware that you can die of carbon monoxide poisoning while on a camping trip while doing some outdoor pursuit such as climbing.

Roland Wessling put a cold to  the touch barbecue inside their modern tent and he and his partner, Hazel Woodhams went to sleep. Sadly this barbecue emitted carbon monoxide and killed Hazel and injured Roland. Please make sure you are safe from carbon monoxide poisoning see www.co-gassafety.co.uk/about-co/prevention/

If you want to purchase climbing equipment and learn about climbing see and see the heading ‘tree climbing gear’
