The BMC’s First Disability Symposium

As an amputee and proud member of the British Mountaineering Council I was excited to receive notification of this event:

First ever BMC disability symposium

Unfortunately, on closer inspection, it seems like it isn’t meant for people with disabilities to discuss their experiences of mountaineering but rather to help able-bodied outdoor professionals that deal with disabled people. Whilst I’m pleased that the BMC is working to help people with disabilities, I cannot help but think that my initial impression would have been more interesting. To meet and listen to fellow disabled people that have overcome the restrictions placed upon them by their disabilities and enjoy getting out into the mountains would have been inspiring – perhaps one day!
