The Irish Schools Climbing Competition 2020

Join ourselves,  Mountaineering Ireland and Awesome Walls at this year’s National Schools Climbing Competition! Attracting over 100 schools across Ireland last year, this is not one to be missed. The team-building competition is ideal for both beginners looking to try something new and those who are more experience. 

Schools are able to select their qualification date and time to suit their availability from Monday 24th Feb and finishing on Friday 6th of March. This year’s climbing competition is taking place in both Dublin and Cork, allowing for greater accessibility for schools taking part! The Main Team event is accompanied by an individual competitor ranking allowing smaller groups or individuals keen to compete a chance to represent their school.

The winning school and team members will receive prizes provided by ourselves and Awesome Walls, along with spot prizes on the Grand Final day.

On completion of the Qualification round, the top 3 teams will compete in the Grand Final on the 25th of March at Awesome Walls Dublin.
