Hosts to the IFSC World Cup and Paraclimbing Cup, which will take place on September 23-24 at Edinburgh’s International Climbing Arena at Ratho, are reporting huge demand for tickets.
Tickets for Sunday’s finals and weekend tickets are now sold out with only a limited number of tickets for Saturday’s qualifications rounds remaining. Spectators are encouraged to buy the remaining tickets now to see some of the best sport climbers and paraclimbers in the world compete. Tickets can be purchased here.
Over the weekend, 77 athletes are already registered to compete across Lead and Speed categories. In the Paraclimbing Cup, registration is now closed with 63 athletes taking part in one of 9 categories. 13 athletes are from the UK, including Keith Lynch of Great Britain.
This is the first time the IFSC World Cup has been held in Edinburgh since 2003 and the first time a Paraclimbing Cup has been held in Scotland. Edinburgh also hosted the IFSC Youth World Championships in 2010.
