Competitors can select 5 top rope climbs to attempt, with harder climbs being worth more points. Competitors have one attempt at each of their 5 climbs.

Climbing and the Olympics... : (17/05/2013)
You may already be aware that competition climbing is shortlisted for the 2020 Olympics – the final decision will be made on the 7th September and if the IFSC (International Federation of Sport Climbing) is successful in its bid to get climbing included in the programme, this will have a great impact on the sport of competition climbing and the indoor climbing scene across the UK and the World. There will be a large amount of new media and wider public interest in climbing with potential finance available for developing the sport right from its grass roots up to a National and Olympic team level.
The IOC (International Olympic Committee) meet in Russia at the end of May and all the short-listed sports will present their bids to the board and the shortlist of 8 sports will be reduced to 3 ahead of the IOC vote in September at the IOC plenary assembly in Argentina. Support the bid by viewing/liking the IFSC Sport Climbing 2020 page on Facebook - www.facebook.com/SportClimbing2020
