What we offer

The sport encourages groups to solve a series of problems to climb to the top of the route making it extremely engaging as well as both physically and mentally challenging.

What is typically included?

Educational visits at TCA are designed to teach students the basics of climbing technique and safety. An instructor will show students a variety of easy tips to move on walls efficiently as well as help them solve problems and understand holds in order to complete routes. We offer students plenty of time on the wall making it a very hands-on learning experience.
