TCA Glasgow’s New Kids Climbing Area

By The Climbing Academy

What’s going on with all of the construction at TCA Glasgow?!

Introducing the Tiny Academy - Kids Climbing Area
It is plain to see from all the knocked through walls and rough edges! We are excited to reveal that we are working in collaboration with Dream Climbing Walls LTD to build a Kids Climbing Area while the space will not be exclusive to children, it is designed with them in mind. We are hoping that this will relieve some of the pressure on the rest of the centre and generated a less crowded climbing environment for our more regular, focused climbers. To show you a flavour of what will be coming by the end of the year here are the artistic impressions of the new wall!
