TCS2015 Returns to MetalMark Climbing

  |   Posted in

The Touchstone Climbing Series is a 10 month comp series that tours each of our locations across California. This month we’re gearing up for the second month of our bouldering series, which brings the competition series back to Fresno. On Friday, August 21st, from 5pm-10pm we’re kicking off the part of the month at MetalMark Climbing! Here are some tips and tricks to prepare for the comp.

Be prepared

It’s time to start prepping for comp night! Here are some helpful tips to help you prepare for the fun you’ll undoubtably write home about.

  • Climbing Gear.  If you don’t have your own shoes, we shall rent you what you need.
  • A competition code.  If you’ve competed in a Touchstone comp in the last 3 years, you already have one! You can look it up, or get your code here.
  • A paper waiver. You’ve filled out digital waivers in the past. You’ve filled out waivers at comps. Let’s keep that beloved tradition alive. Print your waiver ahead of time if you want to be really VIP and skip the line.

What to expect

Aka: How to convince your friends this the the best thing they could possibly be doing with their Friday Night.

No matter your level, there will be tons of brand new comp style routes for you to climb, along with pizza, beer from Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co, and raffle prizes from Black Diamond, Blurr, and evolv. TCS comps are a fun way of saying Thank You to our members for being awesome – and they are not to be missed.

And remember – if you’re competing in men’s or women’s advanced, you have a shot at participating in on-sight finals at Dogpatch Boulders in November. Your top 3 scores determine who will climb for a shot at major cash prizes! Don’t let a bouldering comp pass you by!

Share with your friends and frenemies to make sure nobody missed out on the fun.
