Thought-provoking video from the BMC that might help you decide whether or not to wear a helmet when you're on the rock.

Interesting video from the BMC that might help you decide on when and whether to wear a climbing helmet, and what type to choose depending on the type of climbing you're undertaking.
Good stuff that includes a sobering chat with top climber Neil Bentley on why he chose to wear a lid on the first ascent of Equilibrium, the UK's first E10 - he also talks about a serious head injury he suffered in the Dolomites and how wearing a helmet possibly saved his life.
The video's part of the BMC's Helmet Campaign, which is aimed at raising awareness of helmets and helping climbers to make informed judgements about whether or not to wear one.
