Western Cape Climbing, the home of sport climbing in the Western Cape, is the official provincial sporting federation with the responsibility to manage and develop the sport of climbing in the Western Cape.
We are a registered NPO (Reg# 130-033) and PBO (# 930045807) in good standing with the Western Cape Sport Confederation and our National Federation. The Cape Town district, with a number of active climbing gyms is the largest and most active.
WCC is affiliated to the South African National Climbing Federation (SANCF) and the South African Olympic Committee SACOC. These affiliations provide the opportunity for our best athletes to compete at national and international level with provincial or national (Protea) colours.
In 2020 WCC hosted the first of the IFSC African Continental Championships. The competition was widely acclaimed as “World Class” We have since kept the momentum going launching a “high performance” program for our best young climbers. This new program will bring international route setters, coaches and climbers to the Western Cape and broadly, South Africa, to elevate the standard of our competition climbing and see our climbers continually improve results at international competitions.
