Tickets are now on sale for the British Lead, Speed, and Para Championships. This event promises to be an electrifying national sporting spectacle, offering multiple pulse-racing sessions and something for everyone!

Hosted by the BMC (British Mountaineering Council) and GB Climbing, the championship marks a welcome return to Edinburgh, the city that previously hosted the IFSC Lead and Speed World Cup in September 2022. EICA: Ratho is the largest and only climbing centre in the UK with international standard competition walls for Lead and Speed.

The 2023 edition of the event starts on Friday 8 September with an open qualifying session.

Zoe Spriggins, Competition Programmes Manager at GB Climbing, said: “As interest in sport/competition climbing grows, we are delighted to be building out our national competition programmes. To be able to welcome spectators back to the EICA: Ratho one year after the sold-out IFSC Speed and Lead World Cup where we saw Britain’s Toby Robert’s take a bronze medal is truly exciting and a testament to the increasing popularity of the sport.

“We believe that having spectators at these events adds an extra level of energy and support for the athletes, creating an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. We look forward to providing an even greater platform for climbers and fans alike, fostering a thriving climbing community and inspiring the next generation of competition climbers to reach new heights!”
