Inclusive climbing

White Angles

At first glance, climbing may seem like an intimidating sport, but it’s much more inclusive than you would think. We are working with Redpoint Climbing Centre to dispel myths, improve accessibility and introduce frequently excluded people to our sport.

BICfest – Bristol Inclusive Climbing Festival

Since 2014, TCA and Redpoint have hosted an annual BICfest. This entirely FREE 2-day event showcases the accessibility and availability of climbing in Bristol. The activities are designed to welcome disabled people or those who find it difficult to access sport.

This event is a collaboration between Redpoint, The Climbing Academy and Bristol Inclusive Thrill Seekers. It is open to all adults, children, families and those within care and their carers.
