Fortnightly inclusive and informal climbing sessions, held every other Monday from 6pm-9pm aimed at welcoming individuals from minority ethnic backgrounds to the world of climbing. Booking online essential.
Room to improve
Welcoming to all
We recognise that the climbing industry isn’t as diverse as we would like it to be and with TCA walls situated in diversely-populated areas, we hope to start being able to bridge the gap. We are working alongside the independently run group Colour Up to bring inclusive social climbing sessions to our walls.
What is Colour Up?
Colour Up is an independent social climbing group that focuses on bringing individuals from ethnic minorities together. The group is for those aged 16+. They offer informal and inclusive sessions, run by fellow climbers members just like you. No experience is necessary to attend. There will be a Colour Up representative at each session to help introduce you to other like-minded individuals. Colour Up run sessions at The Mothership and Flashpoint in Bristol.
There is no additional cost to attend Colour Up sessions, other than standard entry to our centre, which is free to pass-holders or £11 for an adult. If you are new to TCA, please complete forms online before you come to save time and maximise climbing time. Scroll to the bottom of this page for special offers for Colour Up bookers.
FREE SHOE HIRE
As a small incentive for newer climbers, we are offering free shoe hire to participants.
BOOK ONLINE ONLY
All participants (both PAYG and pass-holders) must BOOK ONLINE not at the tills. This can be done at any time 4 weeks in advance, right up until a few minutes before the session starts.
