The ClimbScotland FUN Climbing Competition (CSFCC) is Scotland’s entry-level, top rope competition for young climbers.

The self-scoring format and on-line registration of scores make it so easy to have a go and is a great competition for those competing for the first time.

All results are provisional, until the appeals window is closed on Wednesday 6th March 2024 at 16:00. Once results have been confirmed we will be in touch to those eligible for the Grand Final at EICA Ratho, on Saturday 23rd March 2024.

What is the Fun Competition?

The CSFCC focus is on young climbers who are just starting out in competitions. It offers a great way to have a go at competition climbing, perhaps for the first time ever, and compete against your friends whether they are from your school, in your youth group or your climbing club or squad.

Changes made to the Youth Climbing Series (YCS) to bring that competition more in line with the international event format means that the YCS is no longer the entry-level competition for young climbers in Scotland.

NOTE: Those selected to the Scotland Development Squad and Scotland National Squad are not eligible to compete in the CSFCC to ensure a fairer entry-level competition.

Climbers compete individually in the age categories used in all our youth competitions (see below). But there will also be trophies for different ‘Teams’ and each climber can select which, if any, team they wish to have their scores counted for.

So if you want to compete on behalf of your school, your climbing club or climbing wall squad, ask your group leader to get a team together. You can only compete for one team! Or you can simply compete under your own name. See the Regulations below for details of the ‘Teams’.

How it works

The CSFCC has a simple format with a free-to-enter drop-in qualifying round at host walls across Scotland and an easy to use on-line scoring system.

Qualifying round

The qualifying round for all categories will be held between Saturday 20th January 2024 and Friday 1st March 2024.

Simply sign up to enter the competition and visit your local hosting wall (see the list below) during this period and get your climbing parent, teacher, group leader or the climbing wall instructor to support you as a belayer and allocated scoring judge. You have six weeks to do the routes at your leisure (BUT BE AWARE: don’t try them before you want to gain a valid score!).

You can try all the routes in one visit or complete the climbs over a couple of sessions. You are allowed three attempts at each climb. Once you have completed all four routes, your self-score can be registered on-line by you or your allocated judge (parent, teacher, youth group leader, instructor or coach).

All online scores must be submitted by midnight on Sunday 3rd March 2024.

What category am I in?

There are four categories based on your year of birth.

Please note: All categories will be top rope only.

Where are the qualifying rounds?

To make the competition as inclusive as possible, you can enter the CSFC at the following locations across Scotland:

How much does it cost?

Entry to the qualiying competition is free. However you may have to pay entry to the climbing wall, or for the use of an instructor at the climbing wall. Please contact your local host wall to find out more.

Entering your scores for the CSFCC

You can download a pdf copy below. You should use the paper scorecard to keep a record of your scores and attempts. Keep it safe in case of Appeals. All competitors need to record their results via our online score Form. See below for more information about scoring.

Deadline for entering scores

All scores must be registered online by midnight on the Sunday 3rd March. You will not be able to record scores after this time, and any scores not entered will not be accepted.

Recording Your Individual Score

The scoresheet is your responsibility. You should not leave it at the climbing centre nor should you send it to ClimbScotland.

When you have finished your attempts you must record your scores using this google form.

Please retain your scoresheet after recording your score online. It may be required if any queries arise about your score.

There are four sections to the form:

  • Section one asks for your email and information about the climber.
  • Section two asks which wall the climber used.
  • Section three asks for information about the climber’s allocated ‘Team’.
  • Section four onwards is for inputting your score.

You must check the accuracy of any information supplied as any errors may invalidate your entry.

Recording Scores if you are a Teacher / instructor / youth leader or Coach

If you are a teacher, coach or other person who is responsible for the scores for several competitors making up a team, you will have to input the score for each of your climbers.

If your climbers have allocated different teams, you will have to complete a separate form for every climber, using this google form.

In section three of the form you can input the team your climbers are representing. There is a list that you can choose the correct team from. This list has been compiled from teams that have entered previously. If the team you are looking for is not in the list, you can type it into the ‘Other’ section at the end of the list. If you have multiple climbers representing the same team you can save time by having the team added to the list. Please e-mail  to request additions. PLEASE DO NOT request the addition of teams which have only a few members, as the list will grow to an unmanageable size.

Please Note:

  • Teams will be added to the list manually and may take up to 24 hours to complete. You will be notified by e-mail when this has been completed.
  • After entering all of your competitors scores, please retain the paper scoresheets as these may be required if there are any queries with any of the scores.
  • You must check the accuracy of any information supplied as any errors may invalidate your entries.
