The Climbing Academy and Undercover Rock are excited to announce that from January 1st, TCA will become the owner and operator of UCR.
We've been in discussions for some time and this week instructed the lawyers. Everything else is in place so we just have to wait now for the paperwork to be completed.
UCR and TCA have worked closely in getting to this point and will continue to do so as we begin the change of ownership. We all want the change to happen smoothly and safely and we'll ensure that there's no downtime. TCA have plans for the development of the business which they will announce once everything is finalised.
In the meantime, we look forward to UCR moving forwards and to an exciting future for the climbers of Bristol.
