Touchstone Competitions are fun, free to members, and freakin' awesome. If our next comp will be your first time, read on to find out more! 

The next competition series to visit each location will be the Touchstone Climbing Series, or TCS 2014. Kicking off in February 2014, this series will switch back and forth between bouldering and ropes. All levels are welcome and we encourage everyone to come out and compete in this exciting environment. 

In preparation for the comp, the entire gym will be reset for either bouldering or roped climbing. You'll be able to climb, eat yummy food, drink delicious beer, and hang out with awesome people - all for FREE if you're a Touchstone member! If you're a guest, don't worry. It'll only cost you $10 and nobody will be the wiser. 

Be sure to check the schedule at the bottom of the page for more details on when this world famous climbing competition is coming to your home gym!


Q: What ages can participate?
A: We don't have an age minimum for our competition series. Youth climbers who are supervised by a parent, guardian or coach are welcome to participate. 

Q: How is the competition scored?
A: Participants can enter in three. Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. If you consistently climb harder than your category, you will be bumped into the next category.

Q: How do I register? A: Easy. Show up a little early and we'll get you covered. If it is your first competition, you'll be able to register online to get a 3 letter code. This code will speed up the process once you're at the gym. You will need a printed waiver on the day of the comp. Print one ahead of time or be ready to sign a new one!

Q: What do I win?

A: As if food, beer, a t-shirt and amazing climbing wasn't enough... there are TONS of opportunities for prizes at TCS comps. At the end of the night, your score card becomes your raffle ticket, and we always are tossing out awesome prizes. At the end of the comp series winners of the beginner, intermediate and advanced categories will win HUGE prizes with the overall winner taking home a cash prize.
