You don’t have to have a ready-made climbing buddy to climb at TCA. As friends disappear into busy lives, it can feel harder to find an available buddy. So to help you meet new climbers and never miss a session, we run a number of sociable clubs. Most are informal (i.e. with no instruction), allowing competent climbers to gather, share beta (tips!) and practice their moves.
