Tjoms in Arms
Hosted annually after the Friends and Allies fables boulder league, TIA brings setters from around the country to host a full day of climbing. TIA is unlike any other bouldering comp as you compete in teams of two, with 30 qualifying rounds in the morning and a session styled finals in the evening.
The biggest community bouldering comp flew by in a rush of activity. Here’s the highlights that made the day.
Tjoms in Arms is South Africa’s largest climbing community bouldering competition. 2023 means we’re on Volume III and it’s just getting better. Here’s everything you need to know.
TIA Vol. II just went down at FA, the wildest climbing comp in JHB has left us with a big climbing hangover. So join us as we relive the day!
The real prizes are the Tjoms you made along the way. That said, we all love to win, especially things and if the title isn’t enough, we have some awesome sponsors who have donated some awesome prizes.
Tjoms in Arms is simple, its all about showing up supporting your maats and spending time in with the FA community.
About a year ago, we hosted our first climbing comp. Now, we are ready to host Johannesburg’s ultimate community focused climbing comp!
