DATE CHANGE for TBS7 and The Studio Grand Opening!

The Studio Climbing gym in San Jose is shaping up to be one of the premier climbing facilities this side of the Mississippi. And while the holds have arrived, the yoga studio smells of rich mahogany and leather bound books, and the walls tower majestically over a floor plan built for plastic pullers.... we are still a little ways from opening.

Rather than cutting the ribbon and unveiling a partial construction site January 28th, (The intended day of the Grand Opening Comp and Touchstone Bouldering Series 7 Competition) we have decided to push it back in an effort to show off a finished product. 

So let's all in unison pull out our iphones, flip open our calendars, or grab the sharpie we use to scribble important things on the back of our hands... and make a note: 



Same fun: Free Beer. Free Food. On-sight finals with a cash prize. Music. T-Shirts. Fun. Friends. Community. Oh and oodles of never before climbed boulder problems on brand new terrain. It's gonna be the blast you were expecting, just on a different day. 

For those of you who are looking forward to calling The Studio home; we're sorry to have to make you wait a little longer. We will keep you up to date on the play by play as we get closer to opening the gym itself. Depending on construction, we are still hoping to open late January/ Early February. The moment that we're able to do so, you'll be the first to know!
