The fist of the four lead comps was held at the new climbing wall at the OMSH, Wits University.
Registration started at 8:15am with competitors eager to see what the season would bring. Paul and his team of Routesetters, had set some rad lines from grades 20 to 26, it’s the start of the season and we are easing you into it gently.

This year the format has changed and we are really excited to see how it pans out. Instead of our Open category being only those who are over 19, we have added the Youth A and Junior categories to the Opens. Youth A and Juniors will still win medals in their own categories but stand a chance to also win medals in the Open category.
Results from 24th May are below, but remember this is only the first of four and anything can happen! See you all again at The Climbing Barn 7th June 2014 at 9am.
The use of banned performance-enhancing drugs in sports is commonly referred to as doping, particularly by the organisations that regulate sporting competitions. The reasons for the ban are mainly the health risks of performance-enhancing drugs, the equality of opportunity for athletes, and the exemplary effect of drug-free sport for the public. Anti-doping authorities state that using performance-enhancing drugs goes against the “spirit of sport”.
The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport’s core focus is to tackle doping in sport in order to ensure a culture of ethics and fair play within South Africa.
The Drug-Free Sport Act* gives the Institute authority and jurisdiction to carry out drug testing across all sports codes. By doing so we’re inspiring a drug-free sports culture all South Africans can be proud of.
SANCF and Gauteng Climbing is proud to be associated with Drug Free Sport.
