TCS2016 at Diablo Rock Gym

  |  Posted in , ,

It’s no secret that the Touchstone Climbing Series is legendary. 11 locations. 11 Competitions. One amazing community to rule them all! This month’s comp is bringing the community together at Diablo Rock Gym in Concord, Ca. Here are some handy tips to prepare for Friday’s party – er – competition.

TCS 2016 Climbing Competition

Pre-Competition Prep:

Carbo-loading is only half of the game. Here are some helpful tips to help you prepare for the fun you’ll undoubtably write home about. Remember, pre-registration isn’t mandatory, but all the cool kids are doing it.

  • Climbing Gear.  If you don’t have your own shoes, harness or belay device, never fear. We can rent you what you need.
  • A Touchstone belay card. If you don’t already have a permanent belay card, we’ll be able to do top-rope tests the day of the comp. We will not be giving lead tests during the comp, so if you’re dying to lead climb, make sure to test at a different Touchstone Climbing Gym before the comp.
  • 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 paper waiver ahead of time if you want to be really VIP and skip the line.
