/ The best indoor wall in Bristol
I want somewhere I can lead climb and boulder.
If bouldering is your thing then TCA is fab.
Both the current Bristol walls are within a mile of each other, so location shouldn't really be an issue. Plus, they both have very cheap memberships compared to most places (isn't UCR £1?). UCR is the only one for roped climbing, but TCA is great for bouldering.
The one confounding factor is the new wall that is due to open somewhere in the south of the city in the near future (Bedminster?), but obviously no-one can comment on that yet.
If you are in to bouldering then TCA for sure. - (bouldering only)
If you are in to leading then UCR at the moment. (leading, top ropes, and limited bouldering)
The new wall, redpoint is due to open soon but no fixed date as yet, but they have a facebook page where you can keep an eye out.
I assume when he says membership he means annual membership rather than pay as you go.
The £1 you talk about (and i think its about £10 in tca) is to register, you still have to pay the £7.50/8.00 to climb .
Ah, I see what he means. Ignore my previous point then! Still, both walls are pretty close to each other, so it shouldn't make a huge difference.
