The Tricouni Club is a small climbing and hill-walking club.
Why ‘Tricouni’ ?
Around the time the club was first formed in the late 1920s, and for several decades
after, Tricouni nails were at the forefront of climbing technology. Members of the
club enthusiastically adopted this technology in putting up many of their rock climbing
Times, technology and fashions change. Today’s Tricouni Club climbers use modern
climbing footwear, clothing and safety equipment. Indeed it is highly improbable
that any of even our oldest contemporary Tricouni climbers ever climbed in boots
equipped with Tricouni nails.
But at the time the name was most appropriate, as well as being prestigious, and
we still bear it with pride.
