The BMC Para-Climbing Series is organised by the BMC, Link4Life, OnThisRoc, Manchester Climbing Centre, Newcastle Climbing Centre and the Castle Climbing Centre, London. Online entry is now available.



This is a series of events to provide disabled people with an opportunity to have a go at climbing in the competitive environment. It will be run in friendly surroundings with lots of experienced people on hand to assist. We hope to get as many para-climbers as possible to attend the three events and we will hopefully get climbers attending more than one event so we can have some series winners.

We plan to use this series as a basis for talent identification and selection for the GB Para-Climbing Team.


There will be 8 different categories:

  • Using Upper & Lower Limbs (any number)
  • Using upper limbs only
  • Using upper limbs only that have impairments
  • People with sensory impairments
  • People with learning disabilities
  • Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC)


Competitors will have to climb three roped climbs and three boulder problems and will be given a score on each one dependant on height gained. The climber with the best score in each category will win.

There will also be a rope climbing category which will be based on speed; the fastest climber to climb to the top of the rope will be the winner.
