  |  Posted in

The Touchstone Climbing Series – or TCS2014 – is a fun and friendly competition series that will tour all nine Touchstone gyms throughout California. It’s a great way to challenge your climbing, have a blast, and visit different gyms. This year, the competition series will rotate between roped climbing and bouldering each month, so everyone gets a chance to climb. On February 21st at Sacramento Pipeworks, we’re kicking off the season with ropes!

Comp nights are one big, huge, climbing party. Come prepared to have an absolute blast. This event is FREE for members, and only $10 for guests.

How to prepare yourself for TCS2014.

#1. Bring a paper waiver.

Yes, you’ve already signed one. And yes, you get to do it again. A printed paper waiver is required for ALL competitors. You can either print one up ahead of time HERE, or grab one from the front desk of your local Touchstone Climbing Gym.

#2. Register online to get your comp code.

That’s right. 21st century baby! Every competitor will get a 3 letter code that will follow you for the rest of your life. To get your code, click HERE to sign in once you’re done reading. It will look a little something like this:

If you’ve competed in a Touchstone Climbing Competition in the last 2 years, you should already have a code. Click ‘Already Registered?’ Once you know your code and have registered for the Pipeworks comp, write the 3 letter code on the top of your wavier. You’ll need both to pick up a score card on Friday.  

#3. Plan ahead

Think about riding your bike or carpooling to alleviate parking woes! Even though we happily added a ton of parking this year, our lot has been knows to fill up on busy nights like this. The competition will begin at 5pm and end at 10pm. You can come or leave at any point during the night – just remember to turn in your score card when you’re done climbing!

#4. Come hungry and thirsty

Climb your little heart out, then feast on local pizza, beer, and beverages. 

#5. Have fun.

That’s what it’s all about, right? Be sure to post photos and tag them with #tcs2014 to share the magic with all your friends. 

See you at the comp!
