It will also offer young ClimbScotland and Mountaineering Scotland members the chance to claim a Tiso Young Adventurer’s card, which gives them access to great savings on essential climbing gear.

Tiso, already offer Mountaineering Scotland members a free ‘Outdoor Experience Card' worth £20, giving a 10% discount in their stores and online, and provide venues for our Mountain Safety Advisor’s winter skills lecture tour. We look forward to working even more closely together in the future.

Chris Tiso explains: “We are delighted to support Mountaineering Scotland and the ClimbScotland initiative. Their passion for the Scottish outdoors and promotion of mountain safety to the wider public are values that we both share."

"An adventure into the Scottish mountains is both physically and mentally beneficial and we want as many walkers, climbers and mountaineers as possible to become inspired to take advantage the beautiful landscape that Scotland has to offer."

"For many young people, this love of climbing begins indoors, at a climbing wall, so we are excited to help make indoor climbing as accessible as possible to kids, families, parents and teachers.”
