Climbing with the new measurements

Following the last press conference in which the measures were tightened again, the following conditions for climbing at the TSAC will apply in the coming weeks.

The sports center is currently closed to all associations. This means that all trainings are cancelled in the coming weeks.

The time slots in Arque can continue. We have spots available on Monday and Thursday evenings for anyone with toprope status or higher. Due to the limited places, we would like to ask you to register a maximum of once per week and if the slots still fill up too quickly, this will possibly become once per 2 weeks. You can sign up in our spreadsheet.

If you signed up and are no longer able to come, please let us know as soon as possible. If you do not show up twice, we will only let you register if there are places left. This way we can give more members the opportunity to climb.

In contrast to the indoor sports, outdoor sports on campus will remain possible, but the measurements for this will also be tightened. We are still discussing the new protocols, so climbing on the outside wall is not possible until we give a new update.

Members can find more information on the corona page.

Hopefully this gives you some clarity and the infections will go down, so that we will have more opportunities to climb again soon. If you have any questions left, you can always reach us by e-mail (or whatsapp).
