IFSC African Championships Cape Town 2020

After a postponement due to lockdown, the long awaited Africa Cup is almost here! On Thursday 17 December to Sunday 20 December, Africa’s most elite climbing athletes will descend upon CityROCK Cape Town for the long awaited African Continental Cup. This is a truly exciting time for Sport Climbing in South Africa.

Due to regulations no spectators will be allowed but this epic event will be live streamed so be sure to tune in as the competitors battle it out for Olympic stardom. The hopeful competitors will be competing in the combined disciplines of speed, lead and boulder where the winner (1 male, and 1 female) will hopefully secure their spot to the 2021 Summer Olympics in Japan.

CityROCK Cape Town is the host venue and as such the climbing facility will be closed on Thursday 17 December until 6pm, Friday to Sunday all day. You may still book a spot and climb in our peak evening climbing session from 6pm-9pm on Thursday 17 December. The CityROCK gear shop will remain open for business as usual during our trading hours.

What better way to get psyched and inspired than watching Africa’s best go head to head for an Olympic spot, so keep an eye out for the live stream link and get ready to cheer on the climbers from the comfort of your couch.
