Competition climbing and bouldering in
the Western Cape and Cape Town
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 federation has four active districts, Cape Town, Winelands, Overberg and West Coast. The Cape Town district, with a number of active climbing gyms is the largest and most active. Most climbing activities are administered through the provincial federation.
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.
We aim to make the sport as accessible and fun as possible to encourage a large base of youth climbers and have re-introduced inter-varsity competitions to the SA scene giving continuity to the competition scene after school.
Climbing has always been a very inclusive sport with men and women of all persuasions and ages climbing as friends alongside each other. We still have much work to do to include those from disadvantaged areas and backgrounds to introduce them to a sport which in not well known in their lives.
Our Innovative High performace program for the elite climbers leads the way for competition climbing in South Africa and our core executive is a really cohesive group supported by really fine committee volunteers. Between us we are all ready to pich in where required to manage and grow the sport to the best of our abilities.

Transformation entail’s introspection and confrontation within one’s self - sometimes, there’s a gentleness, or even joy awaiting us that we’ve denied or drowned out
