What is Competitive Climbing?


There are three competitive climbing disciplines run and sanctioned by the Alberta Climbing Association (ACA), our provincial sports organization, and Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC), the national sports organization. They are speed, difficulty (often referred to as Lead or Ropes) and bouldering. LCC has its athletes compete and train all three.   The ACA runs and sanctions a variety of competitions throughout the year in various Alberta locations as well as Saskatoon, SK and Cranbrook, BC. Bouldering competitions are held from October to February, difficulty and speed are held from March to May. To compete, an athlete must be registered with the ACA at and register for each individual competition as they become available. If an athlete qualifies regionally and/or nationally, they will also be required to register with the CEC at 




Sounds Good. How do I sign up?

Run from March to May, this discipline tests and athlete's endurance on 1-2 long, roped climbs. Nationals is typically held May long weekend and is superimposed with Speed season. Click here to see how difficulty competitions are formatted and scored.

Also run from March to May, speed competitions are normally held during the same time as difficulty competitions. It tests an athlete's climbing speed on a specific route certified by the IFSC. Nationals are held during May long weekend. Click here for more information on speed competitions. 

Run from October to February with Nationals typically landing on family-day weekend, this discipline tests an athlete's maximum strength on a selection of short rope-less climbs. Click here to see how boulder competitions are scored and what the different formats looks like. 

We select our teams based on our tryouts event each year. LCC takes a maximum 34 athletes each year based on current skill level, attitude towards, and commitment to the sport. If your athlete has successfully tried out and made the team you will have received an e-mail or phone call announcing this. Team training schedules and competition schedules are posted under the 2022/23 comp/training schedule heading.
