Adult Improvers Coaching

For those of you that have been through our Induction Course and/or are new to climbing/bouldering then TCA Glasgow offers a great way to keep developing your bouldering skills and gain confidence in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at no extra cost beyond the standard entry fee on one of our Adult Improvers Coaching Sessions 

Ladies Night

Running every other Thursday night from September to the end of April, we offer a chance for the women of TCA Glasgow to climb together, share beta and meet new partners. Female staff members are on hand to help work on boulder problems and push your grades to new levels. Meet us by the slab wall Tuesday night around 6:30 and get some psyche!  Every four weeks, Ladies Night will be more coaching-oriented, with a focus on learning the techniques of bouldering and specifically aimed at those new to the sport. No extra charge above entry, and there are often homemade cakes to keep you climbing strong. Check our Facebook group for updates and more information.
