The most important season in the history of Paraclimbing is about to kick off at The Front Climbing Club in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, where the first International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) Paraclimbing World Cup will take place on 16 and 17 May.

A total of 114 athletes from 18 countries will compete in 13 sport classes, ranging from physical and visual impairments to range and power impairments.

The event is the first of a series of three Paraclimbing World Cups that will also see the best climbers in the world travel to Innsbruck, Austria, and Villars, Switzerland, where the most anticipated event of the season will also take place.

Indeed, the eighth edition of the IFSC Paraclimbing World Championships is scheduled to commence on 8 August at the PostFinance Arena in Bern, alongside the Climbing World Championships that will award the first set of Olympic quota places for Paris 2024.

A decision on the possible inclusion of Paraclimbing in the sports programme of the Paralympic Games LA28 as an additional sport is expected to be taken later this year.

Paraclimbing finals are scheduled for tomorrow, starting at 12:00 (UTC-6:00), and will be live streamed on the IFSC YouTube channel, Eurosport Player, and Olympic Channel.

News and updates about the event will be available on the IFSC website and on the Federation’s digital channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and exclusively for the Chinese audience, Weibo and Douyin.
