Welcome to the 2018 Touchstone Climbing Series for a whole new round of fun comps, big parties, and good times! TCS is our way of saying THANK YOU to all our members and friends for making the Touchstone community the best group of people to wrestle pebbles or rope up with.

Each Touchstone gym will host its own competition for both members and non-members alike to test their mettle against world-class setting—and crush some pizza and beer while they’re at it. It’s a chance to try hard and party hard together with the whole Touchstone family. The comp is self-scored, with prizes for category winners and a shower of raffle goodies from all your favorite outdoor brands. TCS comps are FREE for members and $25 for non-members.

Beer? Check. Pizza? Check. Prizes? Check. World-class climbing with your best buds PLUS your favorite crushers from out of town? Check! Whether it’s from the mountaintops or the gym topouts, shout it out to your friends because you’re all invited!

TCS Competition Pricing:
FREE for Members
$25 Non-Members


Registration usually opens the same week of a comp. To expedite your registration, please have your competition code and paper waiver in hand when you arrive. If you arrive with these two things, you will be greeted with the highest of high fives.

  • Print a paper waiver.  Everyone entering the gym will need a waiver, even if you are a member.
  • Get your comp code. Your comp code is yours for life. If you have competed in a Touchstone Climbing competition in the last 3 years, you already have a comp code. You can look it up here. If you have never competed – welcome! Registration is fast and free.
  • If the above comp code links aren’t working for you, registration hasn’t opened yet—check back closer to the date of the comp.
