Welcome to the 2017 Touchstone Climbing Series, where we bring you the biggest comp and bangin’ est parties in all of California! We throw this mega party for our community and to show climbers from other areas what we’re all about.

We decided to do things a little differently for TCS2017: instead of cumulative winners, each gym will be hosting its own Citizens Comp with a local winner. No more overall winners. Give it your all, one comp at a time.

Looking to gain a little more street cred? Then stay tuned for our Bouldering Open Comp at Dogpatch Boulders in November for your chance to battle it out with the pros for a cash purse! Those who make the cut from the first day move on to the second day finals round for an all-out crushfest. And not to worry if you aren’t sending in the double digits—spectators are more than welcome.

Citizens Competition Pricing:
FREE for Members
$20 Non-Members

Open Competition Pricing:
$75 per competitor

Beer? Check. Pizza? Check. Prizes? Check. World-class climbing with all your favorite people plus 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!

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.
