NEW CLIMBER? COMPLETE FORMS
The Prop Store opened in 2018. Before TCA moved in, the building was used by BBC Scotland to house the extensive library of props you see on TV – hence the name.
The bouldering walls include creative shapes, angles and Glasgow’s first top-out boulder, it offers climbers of all abilities a unique space to train, socialise and develop their skills. We also have roped climbing including lead, top rope and auto belay lines. In 2019 we opened an extensive mezzanine which now houses a training wall, lattice board, a large campus board and a gym – all included in your entry fee.
The Prop Store is located on an industrial estate 100m off Maryhill Road in north west Glasgow. You can see a map on our contact page.
If it’s easier for you to get to the city centre or southside (close to M8, M77 and M74), then you should check out The Newsroom, in Kinning Park.
The Prop Store is adjacent to the canal and not too far from the path which follows the Kelvin all the way from Kelvingrove Park or Botanic Gardens – which you can see in this video. It is easily accessible by public transport. There is plenty of free car parking spaces and a bike parking area outside reception.
PART OF THE TCA FAMILY
Once you have completed forms to climb at The Prop Store, you will be able to climb at other TCA centres – as long as you have completed the appropriate forms for bouldering or roped climbing. A TCA pass will give you access to all (soon to be) 5 centres.
