Paraclimbing Committee

During the IFSC Plenary Assembly 2019 in Tokyo, Japan, a unanimous vote was cast to disband the existing Paraclimbing Commission and elect an entirely new Committee.

Replacing the previous Paraclimbing Commission (active until March 2019), the newly elected Paraclimbing Committee has a much more operational role to represent more broadly the Paraclimbing community. The Committee includes two athlete representatives, two coaches, two experts, and a routesetter appointed by the IFSC Executive Board. Sebastian Depke, Athlete Representative and Chair, was elected during the 2019 IFSC Paraclimbing World Championships, with Athlete Representative Lucia Capovilla being elected at the 2021 IFSC Paraclimbing World Championships.

The Paraclimbing Committee was officially ratified by the XVI IFSC Plenary Assembly in November 2020. Members are as follows:
